Also, any 07’s (12U's) who participated in the 06's (13U's) at any stage (IE. Indoor Training, Outdoor Training or ODP Tournament Teams) are likewise exempted from their age appropriate '07 tryouts in 2019/20.

All players exempted from tryouts (also referred to as “ODP Returning Players”) must pay the indoor training registration fee for their respective age group by the required deadline to secure their place in the pool.

A list of players exempted from 2019/20 ODP Tryouts can be found here: ODP Returning Players 03, 04, 05, 06, 07 Boys | ODP Returning Players 03, 04, 05, 06, 07 Girls

 

For the 2019/20 ODP Cycle:

 

Players born in the year 2009 (11U) are eligible to try-out for the 2008 (12U) ODP player pool.  This is the only ODP age group where players are permitted to play “up” an age group.  While each year a few 11U players will make their way into the 12U player pool, please understand that the task of making the 12U pool is a very difficult one.  Any 11U players who elect to tryout but are not selected to the 12U player pool will be referred to the NYW 11U Pre-ODP Program (which begins each year in mid-December).   For more information on the 11U Pre-ODP Program please click here.
