2017-2018 State ODP
What happens if I registered online and then fail to bring my Registration and Medical Release Form to check in?
You will not be permitted to participate in that session. You must get to a computer, log back into your account, print the Registration and Medical Release, get appropriate signatures and then check in for the next session.
Is it possible to Register for ODP Tryouts, and pay later?
No, at this time you must pay by credit card at the time of registration.
Where do I get the Recommendation Form for my DOC to sign?
There is no longer a separate Coach Recommendation form. A player must complete the online registration, and at the end of the session, you will be instructed to print the Registration and Medical Release form, which has the Coach Recommendation (Section C) printed right on it. Have the DoC sign this form. Make sure your DoC will sign before you register and pay.
What happens if I registered for try-outs, show up at check in and do not have the required signatures on the form?
You may not be permitted to participate. DOC Recommendation (for all new players) must be signed by your League or Club Director of Coaching (this is very specific; it must be a DOC, not an administrator of coaches). For questions about this requirement, please contact the Cal North Office. The Medical Release must be signed or an e-signature by the parent or legal guardian for every player, there are no exceptions!
What can I do if I missed registering by September 1st?
You can watch the Cal North website for “Walk-On” Try-outs that open after February 1st.
What should I bring to try-outs?
All players should bring their own ball, a water bottle and shin guards. We will provide numbered bibs. Please make sure you have your child’s name on anything that can become lost.
What happens if I need to miss a Try-out (sick, conflict, family emergency…)?
Attending all the try-out sessions is not mandatory so missing sessions will only affect your time on the field. Once you attend your first try-out and think you may be absent for other try-outs, just let the Head Coach know before you leave the field. If you fail to attend at least (1) try-out session, you will not be eligible for the 2016-2017 pool.
What happens if I get injured and must pull out of try-outs?
If you are injured and unable to attend ANY try-outs (after you have registered) you will need to notify the office, and submit a letter from your physician stating you are unable to participate. The letter must include the following: injury, date of injury, and length of time for which you are unable to participate. Please refer to the specific refund polices in the Try-Out Information packet.
What happens if I change my mind and do not wish to try-out?
Please see the refund policy in the ODP Try-Out Information posted on the ODP Try-Out page of the Cal North website. The refund policy will be enforced.
When will I know if my child has made the team?
The procedure for announcing the final pool selections will be posted on the website on the ODP Try-Out page.
