The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

ODP Tryouts

The Mission of Louisiana ODP is to create a positive, competitive, and inspiring learning environment that is unique and conducive to the enhanced development of players and coaches, ultimately preparing as many players as possible for the State, Regional, and US National Team international levels of soccer. 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 be observed.

  • Club DOC recommendations are always entertained and brought into the selection process.

  • Louisiana ODP scouting occurs year-round. Evaluations from ODP Staff Coaches and Club 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, ODP coaches rank their players and these rankings are considered in the identification process. A player’s performance at the South Region ODP Camp is also considered. Players who are selected for the final South Region ODP Pool are automatically invited to their Louisiana ODP team.

Tryout FAQ

All players that wish to participate in ODP, must register for tryouts.  If you are unable to attend tryouts, please contact the respective Director (Boys, Girls) to receive a one session evaluation during an ODP Training Session.  Mark Matlock - Girls Director, markmatlock@cabosa.org; Ryan Lazaroe - Boys Director, RMLazaroe@yahoo.com
 
Changes to ODP Programming:
Younger ODP focus will involve individual and team oriented training with focus on playing through the lines, out of the back, and combining in attack.  Events are team oriented with an emphasis on individual scouting.
 
Older ODP focus is on individual training, position-oriented training.  Specifically, players will train based on the positions and the connections of those positions across vertical and horizontal lines.  Events are individually-based similar to player combines.  Players maybe scrambled with other players from States to execute and perform within a game environment.
