The younger Maryland ODP teams participate in the MD Friendlies on the last weekend in February each year. This event is hosted by the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association and draws ODP teams from multiple states.
For Maryland, 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 and Girls 12U-14U). Fees for event participation are included in the overall program cost (does not include travel).
Hotel links for the 2020 year will be posted in early December. While using these hotel accommodations is encouraged it is not mandatory - these hotels have simply been reserved as a service for families who will travel with their players to this event.
All players will participate.
