Each year Maryland ODP teams participate in the Keystone Diamond Showcase on the second weekend in February (see the calendar on our website for up to date information). This event is hosted by Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association and draws ODP teams from multiple states across the Region.
For MD ODP, the goal of this event is to help our ODP players come together in a competitive environment without pressure to win. This allows our staff to get to know the players better and helps us tailor the Spring training sessions to better meet the developmental needs of the players and age groups directly.
All players within the ODP pool for each participating age group will travel to this event and play in each game (Participating age groups: Boys 13U-17U, Girls 13U-15U). Fees for event participation are included in the overall program cost (does not include travel).
Hotel links are not provided for this event due to the short distance.
While all players in each pool will participate, age groups with multiple teams will be sorted by the staff into ranked rosters with consideration for positional needs. These rosters will be posted below in early February and are subject to change between events and training sessions.
