ODP State Pool Commitment
Players need to attend as many state pool sessions as they can. It is important for the state coaching staff to see them as much as possible before the state team selection date. Players must attend prior to the ODP Spring Pool date in order to be considered for the state team. The only exception to this would be with the approval of the ODP Coaching Committee. Players that are identified by a regional staff coach while participating in a league game may be placed in the pool at any time.
ODP State Team Commitment
State Teams will be asked to go to Regional Camp to compete with their teammates against teams from other states (the age groups that this involves varies depending on gender). Players are trained by regional staff coaches while they are at camp. A select group of players from each state will be asked to train in a regional pool and then may be selected to be a part of the regional team and/or attend regional events. An even smaller select group will be asked to train at the national level.
ODP State Team Press Release Announcement
Please use the link below to make a press release announcement to your local paper. If you can include more than one player in your area, that would be great. Sometimes, local papers are more apt to print stories if there is a mention of more than one person in the area that they cover news for.
