tryout



 

ODPRegister

 

DYSA no longer uses the "traditional" tryout process.  Players will use the tryout link to register for the program. The fee to register is $25.00.  This covers registration and a training jersey.  Fall training for the program will consist of 8 training sessions and cost $200.00.  Once you register your child you will receive an email that will enable you to accept a position for the training program and pay the required fee.

 

Delaware ODP Players are selected to represent the state from open tryouts, conducted by state coaches. The State Association coaches are recognized for their ability to identify and develop players with superior skills.

Players may also be identified during club, high school, or league play by State, Regional, or National coaches.  There are several ways that players can stand out.  We want to help you develop your skills and abilities and learn to put yourself at the service of the team to help the team win games.  How do you win soccer games?

Score Goals - Create Goals - Prevent Goals

Focusing on what matters most will help simplify decisions and increase your influence on the game.

Criteria for selection to Delaware ODP:  (Not in order of importance.  That can vary with the individual)

1. Soccer Skill/ Technique (Ball Control)
2. Soccer Intelligence (Game Control)
3. Fitness and Athletic Ability (Body Control)
4. Desire and Attitude (Self Control) 

It benefits the player to participate and be evaluated as often as possible.  Therefore, attendance at all sessions is recommended, but not mandatory.  There will certainly be conflicts and players will not be penalized for missing training sessions beyond the lost opportunity that comes with missing training.  It becomes a problem if you miss so many that the coaching staff has only limited information about you as a player.  Please stay in communication with your coaching staff.
