[10/15/13] ODP Returns for 2013/14!
Registration for the upcoming 2013/14 ODP cycle has begun, and we are now working to finalize plans for the rest of the coming ODP campaign. We have updated the ASSA web site with the schedule of ODP training sessions and events through July 2014, including the expected dates and locations for a variety of Subregional and Regional camps that will take place next summer.
In each of the past four years, we have provided training for approximately 600 players statewide in two different training locations. This year, we will once again retain an extended "Winter Training Segment" (running from December through March), to be followed by a selection process (in April), and then a "Summer Camps Segment" (in June and July). During the Winter Training Segment, players will receive instruction from a highly-experienced coaching staff while also being evaluated for selection to the Arkansas State Team pools.
To help minimize travel time, all players in our four youngest age groups (99s-02s) will again be able to train in either NW Arkansas or North Little Rock for most training dates. To allow us to meet the developmental needs of our most-experienced players, we will have five consolidated training sessions for our oldest age groups this year (96s-98s), with four of these sessions being held in North Little Rock and one in Fort Smith.
