ODP - Registration


2020-21 North Carolina ODP Online Registration is Closed.

Please email Keri Jones ( with Registration questions.

Our North Carolina ODP Staff understands that Return to Activity this Fall may present schedule conflicts with ODP Evaluation dates due to a variety of circumstances. Our goal is 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 2020-21 season, but has conflicts on both of their scheduled ODP Evaluation dates, please contact our ODP Technical Staff.  In addition to our ODP Evaluations, ODP Staff will be supplementing the Talent Identification process through scouting at youth games & events through the Fall.  If you have questions, please email

2020-21 ODP Age Groups

The 2020-21 ODP program is for players born in the years 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 & 2009. *Players born in 2010 may register to be evaluated with the 2009 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:

  • Your child plays on a team that is not registered with NCYSA (contact your local association's registrar)
  • Your child's team plays in the spring ONLY (contact your local association's registrar)
  • Your child's info is entered incorrectly in the NC Youth Soccer database (contact your local association's registrar)
  • Your Child is playing in a youth club that is not a NCYSA Member Association. You can complete NCYSA direct registration for your player at the same time that you register for ODP by clicking "Add New" when the red box pops up. *Please note, there is a separate $10 direct registration fee that will be added to your ODP registration fee.

NOTE: FIFA now 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.

When does Early Bird Registration end?

The deadline for early bird registration ends on October 31, 2020. This is a firm deadline. You can still register online after the October 31st deadline for ODP evaluations however the price will increase. Online registration will be accepted until 11:59pm on the Tuesday prior to your child's age group’s first evaluation session date. The online registration link for NC ODP will be available on our website once registration is open. Walk-up registration is not encouraged but will be accepted during the evaluation phase ONLY for each specific age group.

What is included in ODP Registration?

The ODP Registration fee includes attendance to two (2) ODP Evaluations, two (2) dri-fit numbered ODP Shirts which players will use for the ODP Evaluations and throughout the year at trainings and events, a Techne Futbol Soccer Training App subscription for the 2020-21 ODP Cycle, access to ODP webinars as well as secondary player insurance.

What are ODP Evaluations?

After registration, a player will attend their Age Groups two (2) ODP Evaluations to train, compete and be observed by the Age Group Director & ODP Staff. During the evaluation process, ODP Staff has access to the players name and jersey number ONLY. Club information is not provided to the Age Group Director or the ODP Staff during Evaluations.  Following the final ODP Evaluation session for an age group, players are either selected to continue or are released from the ODP Program for the year.

When are ODP Evaluations?

Evaluation dates and locations can be found by viewing the ODP calendar located under the Calendar tab on both the Boys and Girls ODP pages. Exact locations will be posted once the sites are confirmed. The 2009 age group will be divided into Regions (East and West) throughout the state. During the registration process, 2009 players will select which Region they wish to participate in and will then attend evaluations/trainings at that Region's location. All other age groups (2004-2008) will attend evaluations/trainings at a central location.

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

Players are expected to attend both evaluation sessions. If a player is unable to attend one (1) or both evaluation sessions, they can still participate in the ODP process. All players who desire to be considered for the 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 ODP program but has conflicts for both evaluation sessions in their age group, please contact ODP Director John Trice at prior to registering.

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

We understand the Fall season may bring with it some uncertainty for player availability. When registering, please do your best to answer the attendance questions. You will receive an attendance link 2 weeks PRIOR to your child's first evaluation session to notate their attendance for ODP evaluations. If their attendance changes WITHIN the 2 weeks leading up to evaluations, please email ODP Administrator Keri Jones at

What Occurs Following ODP Evaluations?

Following ODP Evaluations, players are selected to participate in Teams for our first event, the January Subregional Event hosted in North Carolina.  Through the ODP Selection Results tab, players will be notified of one of the following:

  • The ODP Jersey numbers will be posted of players invited to attend the January Subregional Event
  • The ODP Jersey numbers will be posted of players selected as Alternates for the January Subregional Event and invited to continue participating in the ODP program for the current cycle for consideration for future Events
  • If a player's ODP Jersey is not listed, they have been released from the ODP program for the current ODP cycle.  They are permitted to return to be evaluated at the beginning of the next ODP Cycle.
