The Ontario Summer Development Program (OSDP) is for athletes who strive to grow their personal, social and athletic skills through involvement in programming that emphasizes teamwork, leadership and learning. OSDP is the latest iteration of Ontario Basketball’s Talent Identification and Development Program (TIDP).
As the landscape of basketball in Ontario changes, so too does our programming - and the rebranding of TIDP to OSDP is a reflection of this new landscape, while also remaining true to the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model. The rebrand is less about programming or structural changes, and more about effectively communicating the nature of the programming that we offer. OSDP is an opportunity to develop the WHOLE person (with camp as a true growth opportunity) - talent is not the only outcome or objective.
OSDP provides athletes with a well-rounded basketball experience allowing them to work on their game in the offseason. Training sessions combine the fundamental movement skills of coordination, balance and agility with age-appropriate basketball skills in a fun and inclusive environment. Sport is a training ground for life, and through OSDP (working with new coaches and teammates, learning new skills, and attending camp) athletes have the opportunity to develop physically, socially and emotionally.
