"I have been involved in Massachusetts ODP for more than 15 years. Each year I am amazed at the quality of our coaching staff and the commitment of our players and their families. This year we have upgraded the Program a bit to insure that we remain the most innovative and comprehensive development and identification program for the elite youth soccer player in Massachusetts..."

Jared Scarpaci, Director of ODP




2015–2016 ODP TRYOUT INFORMATION

Olympic Development Program Tryouts In General
ODP Tryouts are open tryouts. Players do not need an invitation or a recommendation to participate. No recommendation of any kind or from any source on behalf of any player will be accepted or entertained at any time prior to the Open Tryout period. U.S. Youth Soccer and Massachusetts Youth Soccer organize and assign ODP teams by CALENDAR YEAR, not SOCCER YEAR. For example, if a player was born in 1999 that player must try out for the 1999 or U17 team in the 2015 ODP year. All ODP Tryouts will be conducted at the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Fields at Progin Park in Lancaster, MA. For directions

Registration
Registration is not yet open - please check back for further information.

Attendance and T-Shirts
Players are only required to attend one tryout session. However, we recommend that they attend as many as possible. This will enable the ODP Evaluators to see as much of the individual’s play as possible. Each player will receive 2 t-shirts with their tryout number on them. Each player will be evaluated using this number. It is the player's responsibility to bring both t-shirts to each tryout session he or she attends. If a player loses one or both shirts the player will be required to purchase replacement t-shirt(s) for an additional $20. Players MUST NOT wear previous years' t-shirts to the current year's tryouts as this can create confusion with unrecorded and double numbers. PLAYER also MUST NOT wear any clothing or equipment that identifies for which Club they play.

Schedule
All Tryouts for the Massachusetts Youth Soccer ODP will be conducted on the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Fields at Progin Park in Lancaster, MA. Players must check in at the Pavillion before their tryout session. 


If you need to register more than one player for ODP Tryouts, be sure to go back to the Massaqchusetts Youth Soccer Home Page and hit your browser's "refresh" button. If you use the "back" button, the second and all subsequent registrations will not be processed.  If a player is unable to make any of the scheduled ODP Tryout Sessions, you must send an email to ODP Director, Jared Scarpaci at jfscarpaci@gmail.com and have the player's coach fill out a Recommendation Form. This form is ONLY for players who cannot make any of the Tryout dates.
