Nope no letter yet. Had several others confirm the same as of yesterday. They said the 26th but USPS wasn't running that day. I have a feeling they really didn't get out until later in the week.

Of those we know that tried out, no one has received a letter. I noticed last week that the NTx Soccer office was closed until this week. I wonder if they meant the Monday following Christmas "break" instead of the Monday after Christmas.

It would seem even if they had been mailed out last Tuesday, some would have received them by now.

In past tryouts, they selected around 130 which were divided up into 4 teams.

At the last tryout session it was announced they would only take four teams of 18 players, a total of 72 players. Quite a difference from the 100 or so mentioned in earlier ODP correspondence.

Mine did not make it in. She was given promising feedback in session one and two, but her third session wasn't pretty.

I will say I found the rejection letter interesting in a not so good way.
It encouraged players to have their competitive coaches contact the offices at a later date and they could be scouted. No mention of trying out again the next year.

I can understand this policy/exemption if a player was injured during tryouts or if a coach has a newly relocated player. But to IMO it would be unfair to those who attended each session (particularly the last since due to the weather), made the effort and made the squad through the tryout process. If a player only attended one session, was not injured and made no effort to attend the others, only to have someone be ushered in later on at ODP's discretion seems a bit unfair to those who busted their butt and made the squad.

Just my two cents.

ODP is looking for the best players for the state team, a few that will then go on to the regional team and maybe one or two per age group that may make the national pool. It is not like club where play time is influenced by attendance. Spots are accorded by ability. All players are automaticllay invited back to the pool the next year but no one is ever gauranteed any spots on the teams. It reflects the national pool in that if you play poorly you move down, play well you getted called up.

I understand they are looking for the best players. But the ODP site states that a player will remain in the pool if they attend trainings, camps and are in good standing. And if they don't? I guess there will be additional exceptions made if the player is a big enough star.

If this is how they are ultimately going to build squads, then ODP needs to forgo the tryout process completely and go to a strictly scouting method.

I heard 72 was the number of players they were taking. We had 9 girls from our team make ODP so maybe the number went up.

Just my two cents.

I heard 4 teams of 20 (including goalkeeper) which totals 80. In the same ballpark but definitely not the mid hundreds as advertised.

2 out of 5 that I know of made it. My DD was not one of the accepted.

Personally, my DD was not ready but it was a great experience for her. She still has some development and though she was disappointed she was not deflated. She still loves soccer. She did find the letter somewhat generic and condescending. Specifically the bold statement that said ' You are a good soccer player". She read that and said, "they said that in all the letters". Laughing She still had her humor so glad for that!

Not sure about your DDs letter but if they were generic as my DD claims. The second from last statement in our letter....
Each year NTSSA conducts open tryouts for the 00s. Do not be discouraged!!! Practice on improving your skills. You may be selected in the future.

A round about way of saying come tryout again but it was mentioned.

My daughter missed the last ODP tryout session so I had not heard either the 72 or 80 roster numbers. Thanks for passing on the information.

Don't feel too bad. NTX ODP is a joke. Better training at the club level.
And it's not the only,or even the best, route to the National team.
My DD's both played on the "top" ODP team, and didn't really get much from it. Camp was a good experience, but from a soccer perspective,you're not missing anything.

I will second that motion. If you can make it through the grind that is NTX ODP and make the regional team, that is where the fun begins. Making friends from around the nation and spending a week in Europe playing soccer for $1000.00 is pretty sweet.
