My goal is to help you better understand the process, expectations and demands. I am here to help you achieve your goals and extend new opportunities.

The purpose of ODP for the last fourty years is to identify players that might have potential to play for the USA Olympic or US National Teams. We use three primary ways to evaluate players:
1. Training Centers - two hour session on a Sunday afternoon to give an idea of what we look for and the format of our events. No selections are announced but if someone is identified as a good player, they could receive an invite to the Pool Trainings beginning in December for age groups 2002-2007
2. Scouting - We annually scout league and tournament games if coaches, players or parents can make us aware of when they are, so we can see if staff is available to go and watch those players. If someone is identified as a good player they will be notified via email.
3. Trials/Tryouts - We host these two day trials/tryouts in several locations for our various age groups from 2002-2007 birth years. Typically a Saturday and Sunday event, we will announce the selected players to move onto the Pool Trainings onsite on Sunday.
Once we have completed all our scouting and training centers and trials, we bring those players into our Pool Trainings which will be once a month in December, January and February in various locations. After the three pool trainings are complete, the coaches will select their ODP State Teams usually by April. Those selected players will then have two training weekends in June to prepare for their Region III (covers all 13 states in the Southeast US) Camp during the month of July. For those players who were not selected to go to the Region III Camp in Alabama, they will have the opportunity to attend our "Florida Camp" in Lakeland to give them additional training and evaluation and feedback.
