2005 Birthyear Iowa ODP Tryouts
Jun 29 - Sep 15
From Jun 29, 2016 to Sep 15, 2016
Iowa ODP District Teams
This refers to the youngest age group within our ODP program (i.e., 2005) and is designed as an introduction to the programs Elite Youth Performance Pathway. The district teams are organized regionally within the state (i.e., east and west) to minimize travel and maximize development.
2016–2017 Eligible Age Groups: 2005 birth years ONLY
The 2005 age group is the entry level age group for Iowa ODP Select Program. Any player within the 2005 birth year is eligible to attend tryouts. From the tryouts a pool of approximately 30 players for each age group and gender will be identified for further training and potential selection to a regional camp in July. The District Program offers an ideal opportunity for players to sample the program through District training centers.
Players of all competitive levels are encouraged to attend district tryouts ODP. Participation in the District Select Program is not an essential prerequisite to future participation in the US Youth Soccer ODP, however, the earlier a player's skills and potential are identified the more help it can be to the evaluations of district, state, regional and national coaches.
