PRESS RELEASE

Thank you for your interest in the VYSA Olympic Development Program.  Your interest to the program is the result of your commitment, high qualities, and hard work thus far.

Players are required to attend district training sessions.  District ODP training is not just about the tryout process for the state pools, but is yet another avenue from which players can grow and develop further.  While a player’s club is his/her “home,” district ODP training provides an environment where players are playing with and against the best in their respective areas.  District training has a minimum of 7 sessions to include inter-district games in November and December.

After the district training sessions, the State ODP pool will then be selected and the State ODP pool training will begin.

We are looking for players to play for the state that exhibit the skill, character and work ethic to train at all levels of the program.  Players are expected to show up to practice on time and be properly prepared to train to include their dress, equipment, water, and character.  Players are expected to communicate and discuss any difficulties they have with their pool coach.

Fall tryout/identification for all players takes place during the designated tryout weekend for your district.  If you choose to register your player for this program, our coaching staff would need to evaluate your player and identify them to participate in the training pool.  Identification fees for ODP are $40 online and $60 onsite.

After the online tryout window is closed, onsite registration will be available the day of the session.  Please arrive 30 minutes early for onsite registration.

Once you commit to the program it is expressly understood by all players and their parents/guardians that once accepted to the program they are responsible for all fees associated with the program. No refunds will be given once accepted to the program should a player elect not to participate.  Failure to remit payment for any fees associated with the program can result in your player’s suspension from their home club!
Additional information will be communicated to the players by their administrator.  Please contact your District Administrator for further details.
Again, thank you for your interest in ODP.
Sincerely,
Gordon Miller
VYSA Technical Director
If you are unable to attend the tryout weekend, please follow these steps!
1. Please still register online!
2. Contact your age group head coach and let them know you were unable to attend.  They will arrange a time for you to be seen.
What should I wear to tryout weekend?
Wear a plan, non-club affiliated shirt, black shorts, and black socks.  Please DO NOT wear a previous ODP training shirt to tryout weekend

Challenger’s British Soccer Camps are more than a week of drills and skills.
