California Youth Soccer Association - North

How are Players selected for invitation to the State ODP tryouts?
  • District 6 will notify club Directors of Coaching (DOC’s) when the window for recommendations for state tryouts is open.
    • Recommendations can only be made by DOC’s or Coaches, no exceptions
      • Parents may not recommend their child and coaches may not recommend their child
  • The DOC’s or coach will complete the online recommendation form.
  • District 6 staff will review the recommendations and invitations will be sent directly to players selected to the players to attend the state tryouts

What criteria are used to identify players for ODP?

  • Players recommended for the state tryouts should be evaluated using the following criteria:
    • Be within the top 20-30 players in their age group in all of District 6, not just the top player on their team.
    • Exhibit superior technique, insight and vision and, display a love for and passion for the game.
    • Dominate due to their soccer ability rather than pure size and athleticism.
      • There may be players who are successful due size or athleticism, but ODP is interested in players who exhibit superior soccer skill and insight

When is the Recommendation window opened?

  • The Recommendation window is opened in summer prior to the state tryout deadline of Sept 1st each year. Clubs are notified when the window is opened.

What about concerns about impacts to my club team and possible recruiting?

  • ODP runs concurrent to a player’s club team; it does not take the place of their club team. In addition, ODP is not used as a recruiting tool.
