Team Manager: Teresa Heitzmann
The Maryland State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA) would like to thank all of the Maryland State ODP players for their hard work, dedication and determination this past season. Congratulations to all of the players that have been identified to participate on the Region I Team/Pool and/or have been invited to call backs. Please know that players must participate at the state level in order to be eligible to participate at the Regional level again next season. Information pertaining to the 2013-14 Maryland State ODP tryouts will be posted on the Maryland ODP website beginning early September, 2013. Thank you again and everyone from the MSYSA looks forward to seeing you at tryouts in December, 2013.

Players must also bring their own linens (to include sheets, towels etcetera) and are encouraged to bring a fan. Players must also bring a fully-inflated quality #5 soccer ball with his name prominently marked on the ball.

The 2013 Region I Tournament is being held in Mercer County, New Jersey on the weekend of June 7-9, 2013. This tournament is by invitation only as the team roster is limited to 18 players (including goal keepers). The coaching staff has been asked to make their final selections after training on Monday, May 6, 2013. The team selections will be posted on this website by Wednesday, May 8, 2013.
Parents/guardians of selected players are responsible for securing lodging and transportation to and from this event for themselves and their player(s). Hotel booking information will be posted on this website as soon as it becomes available. Hotel rooms will be blocked by team (e.g. the 1998 boys will have their rooms together in a single hotel) and parents/guardians will be required to secure their room (for themselves and their player(s)) in that hotel room block. This will ensure that the team is together and is located in a general vicinity to make potential team meetings more feasible for the coaching staff and to allow the players to interact with their teammates. The parents/guardians will be responsible for transporting their player(s) to and from games, for feeding their player(s) and for watching their player(s).
(UPDATED 4-9-13) Due to the limited availability of hotel rooms this year only one room per selected player will be blocked.
