ODP - Registration

NEW_Logo_ODP_Header

Thank you to all the players and families who supported NC ODP for the 2021-22 season!

2022-23 North Carolina ODP Online Registration is open!

To register, please click here.


Please email Keri Jones (odp@ncsoccer.org) with registration questions.
 

Our goal at NC ODP is to do our best to limit challenges that prevent an interested player from participating in the North Carolina ODP program. If your player would like to participate in ODP for the 2022-23 season, there will be two opportunities to register/participate in evaluations (summer and late Fall). If a player still has conflicts on their age group's scheduled ODP Evaluation dates, please contact our ODP Technical Staff.

2022-23 NC ODP Age Groups

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 odp@ncsoccer.org. Please note that a player can tryout/participate in one state only for each ODP season.

What do I need to know before registering for NC ODP?

There will be no early bird registration for the 2022-23 NC ODP season. There will be 2 registration/evaluation windows.

What are NC ODP Evaluations?

A player will attend the corresponding NC ODP Evaluation sessions for their Age Group (*subject to when they registered) to train, compete and be observed by the Age Group Director & NC ODP Staff.

During the evaluation process, NC ODP Staff has access to the players name and jersey number ONLY. Club information is not provided to the Age Group Director or the NC ODP Staff during Evaluations. 

Following the final NC ODP Evaluation session for an age group, players are either selected to continue or are released from the NC ODP Program for the year.

When are NC ODP Evaluations?

Evaluation dates and locations can be found by viewing the NC ODP calendar located under the Calendar tab on both the Boys and Girls NC ODP pages. Exact locations will be posted once the sites are confirmed.

*Players who register between May - July, will attend the evaluation sessions in July and be invited to the evaluation session in late Fall.

*Players who register between September - November, will attend the evaluation session in late Fall only.

The 2011 age group will be divided into Regions (East and West) throughout the state. During the registration process, 2011 (and 2012) players will select which Region they wish to participate in and will then attend evaluations/trainings at that Region's location. If you have questions about which region your child should be in, please email Keri Jones before selecting. Your player will remain in the region they are evaluated in for the entirety of the 2022-23 NC ODP season.

All other age groups (2006-2010) will attend evaluations/trainings at locations central to the state.

What if my child is unable to attend one of the NC ODP Evaluations?

Players are expected to attend the evaluation sessions corresponding to their registration window. If a player is unable to attend these evaluation sessions, they can still participate in the NC ODP process. All players who desire to be considered for the NC ODP program must be pre-registered for evaluations and will be evaluated based on their performance at the evaluation session(s) they attend. 

If your child would like to participate in the NC ODP program but has conflicts for all evaluation sessions in their age group, please contact NC ODP Director John Trice at john@ncsoccer.org prior to registering.

How do I change my child's attendance status for a NC ODP Evaluation?

When registering, please do your best to answer the attendance question(s); we understand circumstances and availability may change.

*Please note: if you register in May - July, you will be indicating attendance for the July evaluation sessions. A separate invitation for you to mark attendance for the late Fall evaluation session will be sent to you in November.

If a player's attendance changes leading up to their evaluation session(s), please email NC ODP Administrator Keri Jones at odp@ncsoccer.org.

What Occurs Following NC ODP Evaluations?

Information and details on this process will be forthcoming from NC ODP Director, John Trice. Once available, an email will be sent to all registered for the 2022-23 season.
