[Updated: 9/19/2016]


Eligible Age groups: Boys and girls born in 2003, 2004, 2005 & 2006
(Program runs in the Fall of 2016 and the Spring of 2017)

The ODP District Select program is open to all players and includes four training sessions and two one-day festivals. At the conclusion of the process, a pool of approximately 36 players for each age group will be identified for further training and potential selection to a regional camp in June/July 2017. The District Select Program offers an ideal opportunity for players to sample the program without the pressure of a traditional tryout situation.

Players of all competitive levels are encouraged to take advantage of this experience. Participation in the District Select Program is not an essential prerequisite to future participation in the US Youth Soccer ODP, however, the earlier a player's skills and potential are identified the more help it can be to the evaluations of district, state, regional and national coaches.

Note: Players who play high school soccer should wait to register for the Spring Festival only!

Cost: $125.00  (includes two tryout shirts, four training sessions and two festivals)

Training Sessions (5:30–7:00 pm):
Dates: Sundays August 28, September 11, 18 & 25
Locations: Burnsville, Coon Rapids, Cottage Grove, Duluth, Northfield, St. Cloud,
St. Louis Park and St. Peter.
