New to ODP

Post by Beast_04 on 9/30/2014, 2:38 pm

Just curious as to how long it usually takes to get the ODP kit (uniforms, bag, etc) once the practices start?  Was almost a rough start, since you can't take stuff with club logos, we are so used to grabbing the bag that has two pair of shinguards, extra socks and first aid kit, etc.  Had to buy some $5 shin guards at Walmart cause we forgot them.  Trying to decide if I need to get a cheap backpack just to take to ODP until we get that or if we will get it soon.

Practice was good though. The 01/02 practice was at Eastfield in Mesquite.  I have seen some people state that they didn't really see the coaches give feedback to boys, but I saw them providing one-on-one feedback to multiple players, including my BB.  Same thing his coach and I have been telling him forever, but I was gald to see that they picked up on it quickly and addressed it with him.  When I asked him what the coach said to him, he didn't want to tell me because he knew I was going to tell him "I told you so." cheers

I'm glad he decided to do it this year and so is he.

If it is anything like years past, ODP kit is simply 2 brightly colored practice jerseys.  No bag, shorts, socks, etc.  All that is on your own.

Last year we got a backpack (nicest one we've ever had, much better than the club backpacks we've gotten) and two full uniforms (jersey, shorts, socks). I believe we got them by the 2nd or 3rd practice, but we had a weird fall last year because so many sessions were rained out (02).

How do camps work out? How are kids selected or when are they notified?

It is my understanding that you make the state team (one team if it is the older groups) and then the team goes to Alabama in July for 4 days with chance to be a holdover for the regional pool.

There are 2-3 state teams for the younger ages and they go to Arkansas for a week.

All answers in the context of the 03/04 group based on what went on with 02/03 age group last year:

How do camps work out?  -  I know what went on at the ALA camp (scrimmages and training and attempt to ID regional pool kids) and it "worked out" for BB in the sense that he enjoyed it.
How are kids selected  -  Some got invites to ARK, some to ALA.   I think everybody who paid and attended 4 sessions (i.e. "in good standing") got invited to something.   As the ALA camp will be for 04/03s to go against 02s, you'd think it would be the stronger kids.  Or the older kids.  Quite sure they barely know the kids, so tends to work against them.  It did seem like most of the 02s were invited to ALA last year, but there were some younger ones as well.   Certainly the whole thing didn't totally make sense, at least seen through the lens of my own biases.  
When are they notified?  -  I think in May/June.   Not everyone invited elected to go, so some of the invites changed.  Some at 11th hour.

If you look at this spring's updated ODP calendar, the developmental camp is in Longview now, instead of Arkansas.

They will email you.   It might be different every year, but in 2005 it was within a week of the last tryout session.  Good luck.

Last year, for the 05/06 boys, the final tryout was September 11th and notifications went out on September 20th.

Don't think it has ever been a set number. If you actually find anything on ODP website; it can't be trusted anyway because nothing else about # of teams or # players has proved to be true for camps or friendlies.

I haven't seen any numbers, either. Last year the 06's had their first opportunity with the 05/06 age group. From what I saw and from visiting with parents, I would say the vast majority of the group were 05 players.

If you don't get picked you will need to find out why and get additional private training to make it in the future.

Apparently you are not reading between the lines...let me spell it out.

If you don't make ODP then grease the skids of the ODP coach.

While not entirely true; I have seemed to notice that the kids who make you question ODP and wonder how and the hell did they make it in are all on a first name basis with one of the age group pool coaches. SO privates with one of the ODP guys might be just what you need. Very Happy
