The Player Selection Process for Louisiana ODP never ends. Players are scouted at soccer events and during league play year-round. In addition LSA asks all Louisiana clubs for player recommendations. These recommendations have proved invaluable to the success of Louisiana ODP. All Tryouts are conducted by the LSA ODP Coaching Staff under the guidance of LSA Technical Director, Mark Godwin. Players in our U12-U14 age groups are selected during Open Tryouts while tryouts at our older age groups are by invitation. Selection of ODP players is not an easy task.  Players are evaluated on the four components of the game…. 

Technique               Tactics               Fitness and Athletic Ability               Mentality and Attitude
