The 2022-23 NC ODP program is for players born in the years 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. *Players born in 2012 may register to be evaluated with the 2011 age group.* Players must be registered with NC Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA) in order to register for evaluations. If your child is not registered currently with NCYSA or their name is not found when registering, there could be several reasons:
- The way you entered your child's name is different than the way the registrar for their club team entered their name
- Your child plays on a team that is not registered with NCYSA
- Your child's team plays in the spring ONLY
- Your child's info is entered incorrectly in the NC Youth Soccer database
- Your Child is playing in a youth club that is not a NCYSA Member Association
Please email Keri Jones if you are having trouble finding your player's information in the NCYSA database and believe they should be in there.
If you know their information will not be found in the NCYSA database, you can still register for ODP, you will just need to register to NCYSA at the same time by clicking "Add New" when the red box pops up. You will need to email a copy of your player's birth certificate to Keri Jones after you complete registration.
NOTE: FIFA requires International Clearance for all players born in a foreign country, including US citizens born abroad. Please read the USSF Minimum ITC Requirement document attached here for more information. If you have additional questions, please contact the NCYSA Registration department.
For players who reside outside of North Carolina who want to play ODP in NC, you must have an interstate permission form on file with "NC" designated as your player's ODP state. You may have completed this form if your player currently plays club soccer with a NCYSA association. If you have questions or need assistance with this, please email Keri Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that a player can tryout/participate in one state only for each ODP season.
