For the 2016/17 ODP Cycle:

 

Players born in the year 2005 (U12’s) are eligible to try-out for the 2004 ODP player pool (U13).  This is the only ODP age group where players are permitted to play “up” an age group.  While each year a few U12 players will make their way into the U13 player pool, please understand that the task of making the ‘04 pool is a very difficult one.  Those ‘05 players who elect to tryout but are not selected to the ’04 player pool will be referred to the NYW U12 ODP Program (which begins each year in mid-December).   For more information on the U12 ODP Program please click here.
