The 2021/22 ODP cycle will begin this fall/winter with open tryouts for both and girls born in the years '10, ’09, ‘08, ’07, ’06 and ‘05 (12U through 17U).
While the start of the 2020/21 ODP season was delayed due to the impact of COVID-19, we will return back to our traditional ODP scheduling for the 2021/22 season which will include tryouts, indoor training, outdoor training and the eventual selection of the NYW ODP State Team that will participate in the ODP Tournament. The tryouts for the '10 - '05 birth years (12U - 17U players) are outlined below.
The 11U Pre-ODP Program which serves as developmental program for the '11 - '12 birth years (10U - 11U players) does not conduct tryouts. Click here to learn more about the 11U Pre –ODP Program.
