OLYMPIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM 2020 - 21 TRYOUTS
The 2020/ 21 ODP cycle will begin this Fall with open tryouts for both and girls born in the years ’09, ‘08, ’07, ’06, ‘05 and ’04 (12U through 17U).
While the 2019/ 20 ODP season was cut short due to COVID-19, we will again plan to incorporate a new feature this year which will include increased programming for the 12U age group. The reclassification from a “Developmental” program up to a “Traditional” one will now mean the 12U training regimen will mirror that of the older ODP age group’s (which includes tryouts, an indoor training phase, an outdoor training phase and participation in the new 12U division in the ODP Tournament). We have also expanded programming to include the 11U Pre-ODP Program that 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 Sports Park).

NYW ODP will also continue to provide indoor training for both boys and girls players born in ‘02/ ’03 (19U). While there is no programming at the regional level for these age groups (IE. no ODP Tournament nor ODP Regional Camp), the 19U OPD Program will provide training opportunities for this college prep age group, which will include indoor training, outdoor training and scrimmages (including spring games against collegiate competition). There are no tryouts for this age group. Simply proceed to register for ‘02/ ’03 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.
