ODP Tryouts

Print Email
 
The primary goal of the Olympic Development Program (“ODP”) is to identify the best players in Louisiana and invite them to play at the regional level against ODP teams from other states. The process of identifying the best players in Louisiana is multi-faceted and designed to leave no stone un-turned. The process includes
 
  • Open Tryouts during which all players are evaluated by ODP Staff Coaches as well as ODP Evaluators. The process is objective and based upon a numeric grading system. Players will not be coached during tryouts. They will simply be asked to play and observed.
  • DOC Recommendations are always entertained and brought into the selection process.
  • LSA Scouting occurs year-round. Evaluations from LSA Staff Coaches on exceptional players are also brought into the selection process.
  • Prior year performances in ODP will also be considered. At the end of each ODP cycle, LSA ODP Coaches rank their players and these rankings are considered in the identification process. A player’s performance at the Region III ODP Camp is also considered. Players who are selected for the final Region III Pool are automatically invited to their Louisiana ODP team.
  • LPDL Coaches will also have input. They will select the top players in the LPDL and those players will automatically be invited to their Louisiana ODP team.
