Players wishing to try-out for a 2014-2015 State ODP Pool must begin here.
Try-Outs for the State ODP pools are by DOC Recommendation and Returning State, regional and National ODP Players. All players at this level must be identified and recommended to attend by the Director of Coaching from their club or league. Any player on the 2013-2014 State, Region or National pools are not required to provide a Coach Recommendation.
Any Player of eligible age that demonstrates the ability to perform at the highest level in the sport of youth soccer. Director of Coaching Recommendation for your local league or club.
Boys and Girls born in 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999. ODP Birth year is a “Calendar year”, not “Soccer season year”. Players must have been born any time during one of the years listed. (Example: January 1-December 31 during 2002 etc…)
GIRLS: September 14th/ October 12th/ November 2nd *Each day will have (2) Sessions per day
BOYS: September 21st/ October 19th/ November 9th *Each day will have (2) Sessions per day
Try-outs will not be extended past the November dates due to High School Soccer rules. Attending every try-out session is NOT Mandatory, however if you fail to attend in the beginning and then get ill, injured or have a club team conflict, later in the try-out process you may be eliminating yourself by virtue of not participating earlier in the process. We highly recommend you attend the first session possible so if your schedule does not permit you to attend later, you will have at least been seen by the staff. All players must pre-register and attend at least ONE try-out Session (including State and Regional players) to be rostered to the pool.
Try Out Schedule:
The daily try-out schedule will be posted on the Cal North website/ODP Try-Out page by August 29th
Try outs will be held at Mistlin Sports Complex located at 1201 W Ripon Rd, Ripon CA
$115.00: New/Returning players (if you register online by September 1, 2014)
$140.00: New/Returning players (after September 1, 2014)
$18.50: Insurance Fee for Non-Cal North players (This fee is in addition to the Try-Out Fee)
Regional and National Pools players will be relegated to the 2014-2015 State ODP Pools; however you still need to Registrar and pay the minimal fee listed below and attend at least ONE try-out session. We are most proud of the Regional and National players and feel it is very important for them to attend a try-out and provide the opportunity for other players to actually see the level of play that Regional and National coaches are looking for.
Players that were named to the Region IV pools during 2014 and were in a 2013-2014 Cal North ODP Pool will be offered a discounted rate of $50.00 if Registered and paid by: 9/1/2014. After 9/1/14 the cost will be $75.00.
