For the 2018/19 ODP Cycle:


Players born in the year 2007 (12U’s) are eligible to try-out for the 2006 ODP player pool (13U).  This is the only ODP age group where players are permitted to play “up” an age group.  While each year a few 12U players will make their way into the 13U player pool, please understand that the task of making the ‘06 pool is a very difficult one.  Those ‘07 players who elect to tryout but are not selected to the ’06 player pool will be referred to the NYW 12U ODP Program (which begins each year in mid-December).   For more information on the 12U ODP Program please click here.
