ODP Overview

ODP Overview & Timeline

The NYSA ODP experience begins with open tryouts, held in the mid-summer of each year. ODP tryout schedules are published on our website, nevadayouthsoccer.org, and are advertised to local soccer associations each year during the summer (if not seen posted, info is not yet available). Players register to the age-appropriate and gender-appropriate tryout sessions where coaches evaluate players’ performance and skills, including technique, tactics, athletic ability, and attitude. After try outs are complete, coaches select players that the coaches believe are ready for and will be successful in our ODP program. These players are invited to join the appropriate ODP pool. An ODP “pool” is the age- and gender-specific group of player’s coaches have selected to participate in the NYSA ODP system.  The list will be posted on our website at nevadayouthsoccer.org.

Players invited to join their age group pool receive an email containing registration information, including fees and timelines. Players register for the appropriate pool once each year, in the fall. Multiple training sessions are included in the pool registration fee. We expect players to remain in financial good standing with the program at all times.

The ODP year runs from July through January of the following year. In a typical ODP year, each pool team will have 5 training sessions, 3 in August and 2 in November. The ODP team will then be chosen at the end of November and have 2-4 additional trainings/friendly matches in December. Training sessions are held on Saturdays and/or Sundays. A schedule of training sessions will be published at the beginning of each season.  In Janurary, teams travel to Phoenix, Arizona to compete in the Championship Tournament.

We encourage players to attend all of their pool’s training sessions to maximize the benefits received from ODP. We recognize that players may have occasional conflicts and may be unable to attend all training sessions. There are no negative consequences for missing training sessions except the training sessions are used to determine the teams for ODP Championships.

Training sessions are held during the summer and are designed to provide development, high-level competition, and training for participating players. During the sessions, players who perform at the highest level of play are identified for possible regional and/or national team pool or team participation.
