Community Olympic Development Program

Springfield's Community Olympic Program on Growth Track

The Springfield Missouri Community Olympic Development Program (CODP) will develop and operate community based Olympic sports programs in cooperation with the community organizations, our community sponsors, the United States Olympic Committee, and designated national governing bodies. This program will provide young athletes in the region access to the best facilities, programs, coaches, and competition to enhance their ability to compete in Olympic sports.

Within five years we will become a leading force in our region for:

  • promoting Olympic sports,
  • identifying and supporting our elite athletes in their efforts to join our national Olympic teams,
  • hosting competitive events for our participating national governing bodies, and
  • advancing the national Community Olympic Development Program.

Within seven years, Springfield's participation in the CODP program will expand from the initial two national governing bodies (USA Weightlifting and USA Tennis) to seven national governing bodies.

Sponsors and donors, as well as volunteers to assist at events, are needed. To become a part of this community effort, contact contact Linda Dollar at the CODP office, 417-820-4624.
