Information About the Community Olympic Development Program

The United States Olympic Committee has partnered with sport communities across the nation to help America's youth recieve the best sports development services possible. The USOC created the Community Olympic Development Program (CODP) in 1998 in order to address the needs of progressing athletes from the beginning stages of development to the elite level.

The mission of the Community Olympic Development Program is to partner with National Governing Bodies (NGBs) and Community Sports Groups to enhance high quality intermediate sports programs for talented youth to maximize their potential in Olympic and Paralympic sports. There are currently 7 Community Olympic Development Programs representing 15 National Governing Bodies.

In order to complete the mission of training talented and motivated young athletes, the CODP works closely with community sports organizations to take young athletes from the beginner level and train them for progression to national governing bodies (NGBs) elite programs.
