2017 State ODP Tryouts Now Open

State ODP Try-Out Registration is now open and will take on another change for the 2017-2018 Season.

While the process for State ODP try-outs will stay the same as previous years (Director of Coaching Recommendation), the State Try-Out calendar will make a move to host the Boys and Girls tryouts on the same dates. After much discussion and debate, we feel this move will lessen the conflict for State Staff, evaluators and families. Additionally help minimize issues with CIF and give more time for the pools to train for one of the most important ODP events, US Youth Soccer Region IV ODP Championships. The State ODP Try-Out schedule will be as follows:

Sunday, August 13, 2017

Sunday, August 13: Boys and Girls (Specific time schedule for all 3 dates TBA by 8/1/2017)

Location: Mistlin Sports Park, Ripon CA

Sunday, September 17, 2017

Sunday, August 13: Boys and Girls

Sunday, October 15, 2017

The Olympic Development Program is a national process for identifying and developing the best youth soccer players.  The process promotes players to the U.S. National Teams, which represent the United States in international competition, such as the Youth World Cup and the Olympics. The main ODP objective is to identify, evaluate and train highly talented male and female youth soccer players.  As part of this national effort, Cal North 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 Cal North Board of Directors and must not conflict with any US Youth Soccer or United States Soccer Federation (USSF) policies.
