  ODP Training/Tryouts


 

We’re excited to announce a new model for selection of our ODP State Team. 

 

Beginning this season, STX ODP will select players straight to our State Team. 

 

For a single registration fee, players will have the opportunity to attend as many training/tryout weekends as their schedule will allow.  Registered players will be welcome to train with ODP staff coaches on any scheduled date, in any city, as often as their schedule will allow. During each session, in addition to training, STX ODP staff will be observing and evaluating players for the State ODP Team.

With a one-time registration and a single registration fee, players will have the opportunity to attend as many training/tryout weekends as their schedule will allow.

Registered players may attend training/tryout sessions in any city.

Registered players may attend training/tryout sessions on any date.

Registered players will train with ODP staff coaches for possible selection to the State ODP team.

 

ODP Training/Tryouts will begin in December 2018 and end in February 2019.

 (FAQs are being updated to reflect new Training/Tryout model)

 

The mission of the South Texas Youth Soccer Association Olympic Development Program (ODP) is to identify and train the elite player. This includes providing opportunities for potential region/national players to represent South Texas at upcoming US Youth Soccer Region III events. ODP is a supplement to club and high school soccer, giving players opportunities to play with and against the best, while also providing them exposure at the regional, national, and international levels. ODP training/tryouts offer players the opportunity to challenge themselves and showcase their talent in a unique environment. The ODP State Staff is comprised of coaches at the club, high school, and college levels. All coaches are nationally licensed and are committed to enhancing the development of each player.
