Every Maryland State ODP U13-17 player has the opportunity to receive a written evaluation from one of the Maryland State ODP professional coaches this season. Every player will be issued their official Maryland State ODP Player Journal at the first training session. Player's should place their name on the front cover and should use their journal to reflect on their experiences throughout the season.
In the back of the player journal is a self-evaluation form (one for field players and one for goalkeepers). Players desiring a written evaluation from one of the Maryland State ODP professional coaches must complete their self-evaluation prior to handing their journal to their Maryland State ODP coach after the final training session this season (June 15, 2015). The coaches will review the journal and will complete a written evaluation, based solely on the players performance in comparison with the rest of the training pool, and will return the journal to the player at the Region I ID Camp in July, 2015.
The U16 (1999) Girls do not attend the VA Friendlies.
