The Tryout process can be through one of several pathways. Regardless which pathway is chosen to be evaluated, every player who wants to participate in LA ODP must register for Tryouts and pay the Tryout Fee.
Players are evaluated by the ODP Directors, Staff Coaches and Evaluators. Attending Tryouts must be a priority as it increases the player's opportunities to be seen and evaluated.
A Club Director of Coaching can recommend a player. To join ODP these players would still have to register for Tryouts and will undergo the same evaluation process as at tryouts, but this can be done at one of the first 2 ODP training sessions. DOC recommendations should be submitted to LSA as soon as possible and must be submitted before ODP pools are selected.
A player may also request to be scouted through the LA ODP Scouting Program. Scouting should not be considered a substitute for attending Tryouts. Scouting resources and staff are limited so LSA cannot guaranty a player can be scouted. The Scouting Program simply adds to the data-collection for the ODP evaluation and selection process. In order to be scouted, a player must register for Tryouts and pay the Tryout Fee. In the Tryout registration form simply indicate that you are interested in receiving information about the Scouting Program. You will be sent a link to submit information for our Scouts. Please be complete and accurate with your information.
Prior ODP Performance
The performance of a returning ODP player will be taken into consideration, but each of these players must undergo the Tryout process. Only players who were selected for the final South Region ODP Pool are automatically invited back to ODP.
Please register on or before 5:00 PM On Monday, September 27th. Tryouts are the following Saturday.
