Eligible age groups are birth years
The main ODP objective is to identify, evaluate and train highly talented male and female youth soccer players. As part of this national effort, the CYSA ODP is dedicated to developing the highest level of youth soccer. This objective must be achieved in an atmosphere of integrity, fairness and impartiality. The player's physical and cognitive skills and attitude must be the only criteria for the program. The procedure to achieve this objective must be approved by the CYSA Board of Directors and must not conflict with any USYSA or United States Soccer Federation (USSF) policies.
The secondary objectives are to:
While individual leagues or districts may have additional objectives for their local programs, those objectives must not adversely affect the success of the ODP.
ODP participation does not mean that players do not participate on their club team. ODP participation, whether at the District, State, Regional or National level, is concurrent with club team participation. The advantages outweigh any conflicts this might pose.
The ODP selection process starts at the District level. District ODP teams may be formed in each of the nine districts from players within your own district. Players wishing to participate in their District ODP must do so within the district that they are registered. Players may not try out in districts other than in which they are registered. Open tryouts for U16, U15, U14, U13, U12 (Birth years - 98,99, 00,01) boys and girls are conducted each spring (April-June). January-December birth years will prevail for ODP only. League and club teams will remain on the August 1st to July 31st format.Each player that tried out for a District ODP team may pay a fee which is collected on or before the first tryout.
Kayla will travel to Ontario, CA July 23-27 to compete with 35 other 16 year old girls from the Western Regional States for a chance to be selected to the US National Team Camp. We wish her good luck! Congratulations, Kayla, on being selected to the regional pool of players! See http://www.regioniv.com/odp/girlspools.htm for more info.
