The NYSWYSA ODP structure is made up of two segments. The indoor portion of the program consists of training sessions for the players who are in the Indoor Pool. The Indoor Pool is made up of players who are eligible NYW State Team Players from the previous season (see NYW ODP Tryouts for eligibility details) and those players selected through the respective age group ODP tryouts in the Fall. At the conclusion of the Indoor Training Program and after careful evaluation, players are selected to advance to the outdoor portion of the program. These players are State Pool Players, who then train and compete for a roster spot on the NYW ODP State Team that will play in the Region I ODP Tournament.
In the spring, State Pool Players train at a weekend Development Camp and at outdoor training sessions leading up to the Region I ODP Tournament. There is one outdoor training session just prior to the Region I ODP Tournament for the players selected to the NYW ODP State Team roster.
Players selected for the tournament are required to pay the tournament fee by the required deadline via the on-line payment process.
State Pool players are eligible to attend the Region I ODP Camp if they so choose.
Players attending the Region I ODP Camp are required to pay the camp fee by the required deadline also via the on-line payment process.
