WELCOME TO THE HOME OF THE US OPTIMIST DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM !
We call it "ODP2"

Mission


The mission of the United States Optimist Development Program (ODP2) is to develop Team Trial Qualified sailors into top-level Optimist sailors by providing regionally-based opportunities for high-level practices with the top Optimist coaches.

  • To enhance sailors’ development through intensive regional practices, providing detailed feedback and ongoing dialogue from coaches.
  • To develop and prepare sailors for a future invitation to the US National Team.
  • To create pathways for sailors to bridge to other classes of youth racing and potentially Olympic development teams.
  • To create sailors well versed in the fundamentals of sailboats and sailing.
