The Berlin Soccer Association in Germany has invited the Indiana ODP program to participate in a reciprocal international exchange program.
In coordination with Dorcio Soccer Travel, eighteen Indiana ODP 96 girls and sixteen Indiana ODP 96 boys will have the opportunity to play in an International Tournament held at the Berlin Soccer Association training center in April 2010.
In return, players from the Berlin Soccer Association will participate in an exchange to the United States, in coordination with Indiana Youth Soccer, in 2011. As part of the exchange experience, the ODP players will play in international matches and take part in educational sightseeing around the city. In addition, Indiana ODP staff will work with players from the Berlin Soccer Association. This will be a great opportunity for our participating ODP players and staff.
Please help Indiana Youth Soccer support this group of young players as they prepare to represent our state in Berlin, Germany along with supporting the German youth for their exchange opportunity to Indiana in 2011.
The 96 Girls and Boys ODP Teams have partnered with Usborne Books & More to help defray some of the cost of the exchange program opportunity.
Now until December 15th, you can shop for Christmas AND help the 96 Girls and Boys teams earn money for their trip! The teams will earn 25% of your Usborne Books & More purchase.
All proceeds will benefit the 2010-2011 Indiana ODP Berlin Exchange Opportunity. You can also shop on-line using the links below.
