An update from NYSA regarding ODP:
We regret to inform you of the decision by USYS to cancel ODP West Championships in January. With not all states in the West Region on the same level of play, USYS did not want to exclude states because of the inconsistencies across the region. With that being said, due to the fact that our current ODP program is based solely on preparing players to perform at the event, we are canceling our regularly scheduled fall ODP programming. We understand the disappointment this brings and we share the same feeling.
Players born in 2004, we’ve been notified by USYS of their intentions to include this age group next year. This additional year will make up for not being able to participate in ODP this season.
The silver lining in canceling for the foreseeable future is the opportunity to revamp and give ODP a new, fresh timeline to provide a well-rounded program. There are still a lot of unknowns at this time so please stick with us as we do our best to make the program relevant, effective and most importantly, accessible to those good enough to participate.
Any questions or concerns at this time should be directed to JJ Wozniak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
