OLYMPIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM 2019-20 TRYOUTS
The 2019/20 ODP cycle will begin this Fall with open tryouts for both and girls born in the years ’08, ‘07, ’06, ’05, ‘04 and ’03 (12U through 17U).
A new feature this year will be the increased programming added to our 12U age group. The reclassification from a “Developmental” program up to a “Traditional” one will now mean its training regimen will mirror that of the older ODP age group’s (which includes tryouts, indoor training, outdoor training and participation in the new competitive 12U division in the ODP Tournament). The 11U Pre-ODP Program will now fulfill the “Developmental” role from this point forward (IE. no tryouts, local district teams, indoor training and a season ending outdoor festival format “Play Day” at Batavia Soccer Park).

NYW ODP will also continue to provide indoor training for both boys and girls players born in ‘01/’02 (19U). While there is no programming at the regional level for these age groups (IE. no ODP Tournament nor ODP Regional Camp), NYW will provide training opportunities for this college prep age group, which will include indoor training, outdoor training and scrimmages (including games against college competition). There are no tryouts for this age group. Simply proceed to register for ‘01/’02 indoor training via the online indoor training link that opens on November 1st. The program is geared toward the serious and committed player looking to play college soccer. Click here for more information on the 19U ODP Program.
