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.
