COMMUNICATING ABSENCES- Players are allowed to miss training sessions, but it is in their best interests to attend as many sessions as possible during the State Pool Training Phase. The sessions are designed to not only allow the coencore_225x225aching staff to evaluate players on their abilities, but to also teach within the US Soccer Curriculum. If a player is going to miss a State Pool Training event, please use this link here to leave your information and it will be communicated to the appropriate coaching staff. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Y35KCJB

Postponement for 04 & 05 State Team Selection-sent 3/1/17

 

Dear 2004 & 2005 ODP Participants,

After much deliberation, the ODP coaching staff would like to see the players one more opportunity before making the final decision on the State Team selection and the invitation to the Region Trials this summer.  With all of the weather issues and conflicts with Region Premier League, it has been a difficult process.  Therefore, we would like to extend the State Pool Phase through the April 23rd training session.  Following the conclusion of that training session, we will select the Alabama State Teams that will represent Alabama at the Region Trials (dates below).  Please note that we do not train in March ( see ODP Calendar ).

Remember, the pinnacle of the ODP experience is the Region Trials where we play matches against other states and the top players from the Region are selected to attend Regional and potentially national ODP events.

SUNDAY 1/22/17 GIRLS ODP SESSION CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER- Posted 3:33 p.m. on 1/21/17

 

Dear 2000-2005 Girls ODP Participants,

I regret to inform you that we will have to cancel Sunday 1/22 ODP session at SHAC.  While we do have access to the turf fields, there is a 100% chance of thunderstorms tomorrow which will make the playing conditions unsafe.  Please see below for the details:

1) Your registration for this event will automatically roll over to the Sunday April 23rd event.  You do not have to re-register for this event.  Due to a very full spring calendar, this is the only opportunity to roll all age groups over to without causing the most registration headaches.

2) If you ordered a sweatshirt for the January 2nd event, it will be available at the next event that you attend.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to mail it out, however, we may provide an opportunity for pick-up at the ASA Office located on Valleydale (info to come soon).

3) The coaching staff will have to use all previous sessions notes on players to make the best decision for those that will be selected for the Memphis Sub-Regional Event.  By no later than Monday January 23rd at noon, please let us know your availability for both the Memphis Sub-Regional and the Region Trials this summer by completing a short Survey Monkey- https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/K28FMS5 

4) For the Memphis Sub-Regional event, we will make selections and send invitations for the 03-05 age groups by Tuesday 1/24/17 at noon.  We plan to take the following number of teams in each age group (please note that we only intended to take one in each age group but the Region staff asked us to help out by sending a 2nd team in select age groups).

2000- 1 team

2001- 2 teams

2002- 1 team

2003- 2 teams

2004- 2 teams

2005- 2 teams (9v9)

 


MODIFIED START/FINISH TIMES FOR BOY'S ODP EVENT ON SATURDAY 1/21/17- Posted 5:49 a.m. at 1/21/17

 

Due to today's forecast for thunderstorms through the morning, we will delay the start time and re-arrange the times as follows:

Saturday, January 21, 2017 11:00-12:15 p.m. & 2:00-3:30 p.m. ODP State Pool Training Boys 00-01, 04-05 Sicard Hollow Athletic Complex- Vestavia, AL

EMAIL SENT TO GIRLS' ODP PLAYERS REGISTERED FOR 1/22/17 EVENT (sent 1/20/17 at 3:45 p.m.)

Dear Girls ODP 2000-2005 Participants,


As of right now, we are planning to move forward with Sunday's session as scheduled on the TURF fields at SHAC in Vestavia.  It's important that we keep players safe and that we try to get this event so that we can finalize the selections for the Memphis Sub-Regional Event in February (this is why we moved it from Montgomery to Vestavia so that we can use turf fields so we can still play if it's wet.  We will only modify our times if there is lightning.

I will make a decision by 3 p.m. on Saturday if we will proceed as scheduled or move the start times back to adjust accordingly to the weather.  We will have access to the fields until 5 p.m. and will modify the length of the sessions if needed.

I understand that making changes affects many people in many different areas of the state.  I also understand that people have far distances to travel and I'm trying to make decisions with enough lead time so that you can plan accordingly.   Our main priority is to keep the players safe, and this includes the drive.  Soccer is not worth someone's life so please be careful on your drive and use your best discernment.    

I appreciate your patience and your understanding during this process as it has not been easy and several people have reached out to me with questions or statements of displeasure in the process.  I ask that you do not call, text, or email me.  We have over 250 possible participants for the boys' session and another 250 for the girls on Sunday.  I know that everyone wants to know the decision but when several 100 people ask me, it only delays the swiftness with which I can communicate to you all.  The fastest way to receive communication is to sign-up for the rainedout.com notifications below and check the ODP News Page at  http://www.alsoccer.org/odp/odp_news/

Dear Boys 2000-2005 ODP Participants,

As of right now, we are planning to move forward with tomorrow's session as scheduled on the TURF fields at SHAC in Vestavia.  It's important that we keep players safe and that we try to get this event so that we can finalize the State Team selections (this is why we moved it to Saturday from Sunday because the forecast for Sunday looks worse with 100% chance of thunderstorms all day).  For those that are unaware, we also moved it from Montgomery to Vestavia so that we can use turf fields so we can still play if it's wet, and will only modify our times if there is lightning.

I will make a decision by 6 a.m. tomorrow if we will proceed as scheduled or to move the start times back to adjust accordingly to the weather.  We will have access to the fields until 5 p.m. and will modify the length of the sessions if needed.

1-2-17 ODP Training Session Cancelled (posted 3:07 p.m. 1-1-17)

 

Dear Girls ODP Participants,

Happy New Year! 

In looking at tomorrow's forecast (possible severe weather in the afternoon and rain all day), we have decided to cancel Monday 1/2/17 session at SHAC.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but we wanted to get this information out as soon as possible so that people could cancel their travel plans.


We will roll this registration over into the January 22nd training session.

If you were supposed to pick up jersey items and sweatshirts, we will have them available for pick-up at the Sub-Regional in Gainesville.   We also will plan to host a pick-up time at our office or another location in Birmingham this week.  The most likely schedule (weather permitting) is for opportunities to pick-up gear and scrimmage with Alabama Elite from 6-8 p.m. on Tue/Thur at Riverchase Park in Hoover.  We will communicate more about this on Tuesday 1/2/17 once we can confirm fields.

 

I apologize that we cannot deliver to all locations across the state but we will make sure that you get your correct gear.  ODP On-Site Administrator Katie Steinert can be reached at khsteinert3@gmail.com
