We have finalized our Northern Nevada ODP try outs! Coaches from California have been employed to evaluate our Northern players and select top players to attend a final try out in Las Vegas in December.
Players born in 2000 and 2001 will have try outs starting on Saturday, November 9th and Sunday, November 10th from 12:00 – 2:00pm, both days at Golden Eagle fields in Sparks. Then again on Sunday, November 17th from 11:00am – 12:30pm again at Golden Eagle.
Players born in 1997, 1998, and 1999 will have try outs on Saturday, November 9th from 2:00 – 4:00pm, and on Sunday, November 10th from 10:00am – 12:00pm both days at Golden Eagle, and then again on Sunday November, 17th from 1:00 -2:30pm again at Golden Eagle.
COSTS, WHETHER YOUR PLAYER ATTENDS 1 OR ALL 3 TRY OUTS, WILL BE $75.00
ALSO, there will be an “invite” only try out on Sunday, November 17th from 3:00-4:00pm or later. This will be at the discretion of the coaches, and could be used to “see” players again that are on the “bubble” or to put all who they feel are top players together before they make their final selections for the State try out. They won’t know what they want to look at until after, at least, the first weekend. This additional try out will be at no additional cost.
In order to attend these try outs your player must be registered into one of the State leagues; GBYSL or RMYSL. If your player is not registered into one of those leagues, please e-mail Stacy Ojers at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. On the subject line please put “ODP try out NOT a State member.”
Lastly, this year, please be advised that players selected at our Northern try outs are not on the State team, but only in the State “pool”. In order for a player from the North to make the State team and attend the ODP Championship tournament in Arizona it will be necessary to attend the final selection try outs that the college coaches will be holding in Las Vegas.
The date has not been selected for the Las Vegas final selection at this time, but as soon as I know it will be posted here. No player selected into the “pool” will be put onto an ODP Championship Tournament team unless they attend the try outs in Las Vegas. There is no charge for our “pool” players for the additional try outs in Las Vegas, only their travel expenses. And, ONLY the Northern “pool” players will be allowed to attend the Las Vegas try outs, any Northern player that is not on our list, but shows up in Las Vegas for those try outs, will not be allowed to try out.
Lastly, 2002’s may try out with the 2001s, but they will only be evaluated as a 2001, no concessions will be made for them being a year younger. In fact, the coaches doing the evaluations will be unaware of the age difference because they will have the same color penny on as a 2001, therefore, in order for a 2002 to make the “pool” they must beat out a 2001 player for a spot…..not unusual, but not easy.
Good luck everyone, I hope to see you out there! Here’s the link to register;
