The Maryland State Youth Soccer Association is proud to continue offering an opportunity for players born in 2003 or 2004 to participate in the Maryland State ODP. The U12 portion of the Maryland State ODP identifies and trains the top 100 male and female U12 players from across the state of Maryland.
Boys and girls born in 2003 or 2004 who have a strong soccer background and are looking for a unique training environment to supplement their club schedule are eligible to tryout. Players must be a Maryland resident and a registered MSYSA player.
Tryouts for the 2015 season will be held on Saturday, October 25 and Sunday, October 26, 2014 at the Garrison Forest School.
As of this time the online tryout registration for the U12 Maryland State ODP is closed. Player's born in 2003 and 2004 who live in the state of Maryland and are US Youth Soccer/MSYSA carded are eligible to complete a "walk-up" registration on the day of tryouts. To complete a walk-up registration, player's should arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the tryout block that they would like to attend (see below). Player's will need to have their parent/guardian complete the walk-up registration form, provide proof of age (e.g. birth certificate) and proof of registration with US Youth Soccer/MSYSA (e.g. 2014-15 player card) in addition to paying the walk-up registration fee of $75.00 (cash or check only).
