Maryland ODP teams participate in the VA Friendlies on the last weekend in February each year. This event is hosted by Virginia Youth Soccer Association and draws ODP teams from multiple states and Regions.
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 13U-17U, Girls 13U-15U). Fees for event participation are included in the overall program cost (does not include travel).
Please see additional information on the VA Event Page.
Please note the hotel booking window has closed.
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 from appropriate age group pools will participate. Rosters indicating team assignments for the age groups with multiple teams have been posted below.
Please note there will be changes to these rosters ahead of this event based on the MD Invitational; coaching staff will communicate updates with players directly.
