The purpose of the session is to assist in the players' skill development and allow the players to be introduced to some of the Delaware ODP professional staff coaches.

The session also allows our staff to begin the identification process for next year’s U12 (2012) and the following year’s U12 (2013) ODP journey, while also allowing current U12 (2011) players a chance to work with our staff if they missed the tryouts or Winter Camp for this current 2022-2023 season.

Next year’s tryouts for Delaware ODP are tentatively planned for August, but this event will help our staff to begin to identify talented players for next year.


The session structure will include:

·       Activation phase to get the players physically ready to play. 

·       Technical development phase to demonstrate and teach technical skills.

·       Small group activity Small Sided Games.

·       Cool down phase.
