The Greater Springfield Missouri Community Olympic Development Program (CODP) is a developed and operated community based Olympic Sports Programs in cooperation with our community organizations, our community partners, the United States Olympic Committee, and the designated national governing bodies. This program provides young athletes in our region access to some of the best facilities, programs, coaches, and competition in order to enhance their ability to compete in Olympic sports.
The Greater Springfield CODP was established in 2003 and is overseen by a volunteer board which includes local Olympians. The program currently includes Archery, Ice Hockey, Tennis and Volleyball programs. Athletes involved in CODP programs receive holistic mental and physical training in their sport, both in the competitive arena and off the field. The program includes nearly 600 athletes and has an outreach to nearly 2,000 youth. Many CODP athletes have gone on to compete at the collegiate, state and national levels.
