Over the 25-year history of FC Frederick, our commitment and dedication of our players, teams, and coaching staff has left a
legacy of high achievement, as demonstrated by the number of FC Frederick alumni in College, performance by FC Frederick teams in Maryland State Cup
play, and the numbers of FC Frederick players selected for Maryland's Olympic Development Program (ODP).
The Maryland State Cup Championships is part of the US Youth Soccer Association National Championship Series and is organized by the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA). Teams battle to be declared the Maryland State Champion and will advance to represent Maryland at the Region I Regional event.
Olympic Development Program (OPD)
The US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) is a national identification and development program for high-level players. The program identifies, forms, and develops youth players throughout the country to represent their state and regional associations.
At the state association level, pools of players are identified in each eligible age group, and brought together as a team to develop their skill through training and competition. From the state pools and subsequent teams, players are identified for regional and national pools and teams.
