About Northern Nevada ODP

Who Can Tryout?

Boys and Girls with birth years 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 from all local leagues and teams are eligible to tryout.  Players that reside outside Northern Nevada may also tryout (Truckee, South Lake Tahoe, etc).  Please note that there is not a 2008 Northern Nevada pool or team.  2008 players will be trying out for recommendation for regional pool and may be selected for the 2007 Northern Nevada pool.

How are Players Selected?

Players will be selected for teams based on their birth year (except 2008’s).  If they play up an age group with their club team, they still will be evaluated only for their birth year team.  Players are selected based on open tryouts and invitations.  Criteria for evaluating players are:

  1. Technique
  2. Tactical Understanding of the Game
  3. Fitness and Athletic Ability
  4. Attitude

ODP tryouts are not for a specific position, but for a team.  The head coach of that team will decide where a player is best suited to play within that team.  While experience and success in a particular position will be taken into consideration at tryouts and for tournament team selection, a coach may decide to play a player in a position they do not play on their club team.

How Many Players are Selected?

July and August tryouts are for Northern Nevada ODP pools.  The pools (25 to 35 players of the same birth year) usually has more players than can be taken to the ODP Championship tournament.   The pools will train as a team and participate in friendly matches between September and December.  At the end of pool training, the head coach will select 18 players from the pool to travel and compete in the ODP Championship tournament in January (Phoenix, AZ).


What is the ODP Schedule?

Tryouts will be July 21st and 22nd, 2018 at South Valleys Sports Complex (15651 Wedge Parkway, Reno Nv 89511) and August 18th and 19th (also South Valleys Sports Complex.  Pool training (6 to 8 sessions, mostly on Sundays) starting early September through November at a location in Reno.  We expect a friendly matches in early December (within a few hours driving distance) on either a Saturday or Sunday.  ODP Championships is a four day tournament scheduled for January 4th through 7th, 2019.

Does a Player have to attend all the Tryouts?

No.  We recommend players attend as many Tryouts as they can, but it is not required to attend all Tryouts.

What if a Player is injured for Tryouts?

Injured players should register before the end of tryouts, even if they can not attend due to injury, and Contact Us to get more information and to arrange for evaluation when healthy.

Can a Player participate in Northern Nevada ODP and Nevada ODP?

Players are welcome to tryout for both programs, however players can not participate in the player pools for both programs.  They must choose one if selected for both.

Does a Player need to Tryout if they made Nevada ODP or Regional team last year?

Yes, each year is a brand new Tryout.  All players interested in participating must register for tryouts each year.
