Please know that players must participate at the state level in order to be eligible to participate at the Regional level again next season. Information pertaining to the 2013-14 Maryland State ODP tryouts will be posted on the Maryland ODP website beginning early September, 2013.

Please know that team rosters have been adjusted to make equal/balanced teams based on the players that indicated they were able to attend.
Any parent/guardian wishing to secure a hotel room for Saturday night should click on the following link and proceed similarly to how rooms were secured for the 2013 Region I Tournament. Hotel rooms are not required for this event and as such team blocks are not being created. Any questions concerning hotel rooms should be directed to AB Sports Zone (800-259-0244).
Any additional available information pertaining to the 2013 Region I Tournament make-up weekend will be located on the Region I website.
As of this time Maryland will be sending three teams from the 2000 Girls (just like the initial Region I Tournament) to participate in the make-up event scheduled for June 22-23, 2013 at the Kirkwood Soccer Complex in New Castle, Delaware.
As soon as Region I releases the game schedule this information will be posted here along with the updated team rosters (as some rosters were moved around to maintain equal/balanced rosters due to some players not being able to attend) and any available hotel information.
To: ODP U13 and U14 Parents and Players
From: Bill Stara
Subject: Region I Tournament.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in the cancellation of the U13 (2000) and U14 (1999) age groups for the 2013 Region I Tournament last week due to the tropical storm. Region I is looking to host a make-up event for these two age groups in Delaware at the Kirkwood Soccer Complex (1220 River Road, New Castle, DE 19720) the weekend of June 21, 22 & 23. In order to plan for this event, the MSYSA needs to know how many players would be interested in attending this event so that we can determine how many teams we can enter and how many staff members will be needed for the event. Please know that only the players that were initially selected to attend the 2013 Region I Tournament are eligible to attend this make-up event. Information pertaining to any potential refund for players initially selected to attend the 2013 Region I Tournament will be posted on the MSYSA team pages as soon as it becomes available. Hotel information for this make-up event will be posted on the team pages as soon as the event schedule is finalized.
Region I has requested the final numbers for Maryland by 4:00pm today (Tuesday, June 11, 2013). Therefore, the MSYSA needs to know if your player(s) is NOT able to attend. To report that your player is NOT able to attend the event in Delaware on the weekend of June 21-23, 2013 please send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org by 3:30pm today:
Age Group: U13 or U14
Gender: Male or Female
Field player or Goalkeeper
Once the final head count is determined the total number of teams and their corresponding rosters will be placed on the team pages. Additional information (e.g. game schedules) will be placed on the team pages once Region I determines how many state associations and teams will be attending this event.

The 2013 Region I Tournament is being held in Mercer County, New Jersey on the weekend of June 7-9, 2013. This tournament is by invitation only as the team roster is limited to 18 players (including goal keepers). Maryland will send three teams (for a total of 54 players) from the 2000 girls training pool. The coaching staff has been asked to make their final selections after training on Monday, May 6, 2013. The team selections will be posted on this website by Wednesday, May 8, 2013.
Parents/guardians of selected players are responsible for securing lodging and transportation to and from this event for themselves and their player(s). Hotel booking information will be posted on this website as soon as it becomes available. Hotel rooms will be blocked by team (e.g. the 1998 boys will have their rooms together in a single hotel) and parents/guardians will be required to secure their room (for themselves and their player(s)) in that hotel room block. This will ensure that the team is together and is located in a general vicinity to make potential team meetings more feasible for the coaching staff and to allow the players to interact with their teammates. The parents/guardians will be responsible for transporting their player(s) to and from games, for feeding their player(s) and for watching their player(s).
(UPDATED 4-9-13) Due to the limited availability of hotel rooms this year only one room per selected player will be blocked.
