Before player selections are made and teams are formed, it is the sole responsibility of all players to make an impression on coaches and evaluators during the tryout process in order to be selected as a member of the Maryland Olympic Development Program.
Once selected to an ODP team, players are expected to attend all training sessions and games. Any absences must be communicated to the age group head coach. Players are expected to communicate with age group coaches, team managers or the ODP Head Coach regarding any question or area of concern. Lastly, at this level of competition, devotion to the game of soccer is paramount for success.
Parents must be sensitive to the pressure that most players feel when participating at ODP events. Your positive encouragement toward ALL players at ALL times is appreciated. Please be aware that training times are not to be used for coach/parent conferences. Communcation with coaches should be arranged through the team manager.
