MD State ODP Events:
12U Sub-Regional Friendlies
Each year Maryland 12U ODP teams host and participate in the Maryland Sub-Regional Friendlies in June (see the calendar on our website for up to date information). This event is hosted by the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association and draws ODP teams from multiple states across the Region.
For MD ODP, the goal of this event is to have our ODP players come together in a competitive environment to showcase their development through the seasonal year against competitive teams from other States.
All players within the ODP pool for the 12U age group will be rostered for this event and play in each game (Participating age groups: Boys 12, Girls 12U). Fees for event participation are included in the overall program cost (does not include travel).
Due to the short travel time to the complex in Columbia MD and the events format (please see schedules below) we will not provide hotel links for this event.
While all players in each pool will participate, multiple teams will be sorted by the staff into ranked rosters with consideration for positional needs. These rosters will be posted below in early June and are subject to change between events and training sessions.
