ODP Registration


Registration for events will close at 12 p.m. NOON on the deadline date.  

The purpose for this is to allow time for our staff to plan ahead accordingly for the right ratio of coaches, proper field space, and gear/jerseys.  Also, the ASA office only has 4 employees that oversee many other programs.  The noon time frame will allow time for assistance from our staff.

PLEASE READ OVER THE ODP OVERVIEW PAGE AS WELL AS THE FAQ BEFORE PROCEEDING THROUGH ANY REGISTRATION PROCESS.

 

For returning players/recommended players, you should have been sent an email from GotSoccer to complete the Initial Registration.  After completing the Initial Registration, the link for the ODP training schedule with times, agenda, etc can be found on the ODP Calendar page or click the following link:  ODP TRAINING CALENDAR.

 


 

 

ODP REGISTRATION SYSTEM- 

 

We are currently using the GotSoccer platform for all ODP Registration.  If you do not have an account, you will be required to create a new account with GotSoccer for each player.  If you are unsure if you already have an account (as all ASA registered players will have an account, please contact Martha Disko).  If you need to create an account, it will take about 5-10 minutes to set-up your new account(s) and to complete the Inital registration. 

Please CLICK HERE for the instructions and contact ODP Administrator Martha Disko at martha@alsoccer.org  if you have any questions.  

Each individual player will need his/her own account.  For families with multiple children, please make sure that you create a profile for each child, then you can go and create a family account where you can log-in all of your family members at once.  See page 5 of the attachment for how to create a Family Account.


REGISTRATION CALENDAR

  • DOC/Club Recommendations were due by August 12th, 2016.  Some clubs have yet to send in recommendations.  Players recommended after that will only be accepted and invited at the discretion of the State Technical Director.
  • Invitations will be sent starting August 13th.
  • The Open Trials for any non-returning State Team Player or non-recommended players will be included into the State Pool Training events on September 5th and October 23th.
    • Registration for open tryouts will open August 27th.
  • For the 2000-2003 age groups, the State Pool Training Phase (returning State Team members, recommended players, and any players that make it past tryouts) will consist of 3-4 sessions from September until December.  The main State Pool Training Sessions are the most important ones to attend for evaluation purposes.  All State Pool players are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions so that the staff has an opportunity to evaluate each age group pool as a whole.  The State Team selections and alternates will be selected after the December training session.
    • Additional sessions have been added as Regionalized Training Sessions.  These are shorter in duration and are meant to train players from their local districts across age groups and with various ODP Staff.  Some will be  featured around certain events including college matches.
    • By providing extra training sessions during the fall, we will hopefully provide developmental benefits to players during their fall club season.
  • The 2004/2005 age groups will be encouraged to participate in the Elite Player Development Program as a method to get to know more about the program including the staff, playing style, and system.
    • The EPD players can be overseen by the ODP Coaching Staff.
    • The 2004s/2005s will tryout in a tournament style format in late November and possibly another open date in the spring (if necessary).
    • After tryouts, a State Pool will be formed for 2004s & 2005s and the pool will train until March when the State Team Selections will be made.
  • The RPL schedule for the youngest age group has not yet been released, but we will try to reschedule our spring events for the youngest age group if necessary so that we do not have conflicts like we did this year.

 


2000-2003 BIRTH YEARS
Alabama Soccer will institute a scouting system for the 2000-2003 age groups, which will be the primary method for identifying players.
 

Players will be evaluated primarily in events, such as State League, Region 3 Premier League, National League, State Cup, and Southern Regionals. The scouting staff will consist of ASA, Region 3, and US Soccer personnel. The ASA Technical Director will coordinate and have final approval on invitations to the ASA State Pool.

 
It should be noted that Club DOC’s can also recommend in writing players to be evaluated.
 
In the sometimes case that a player is missed or clubs do not send in recommendations, an Open Tryout may be scheduled only through permission of Technical Director Zac Crawford.  
 
IF YOU RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM ASA ODP BEING INVITED TO THE STATE POOL, PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY LINKS ON THIS PAGE.  YOU NEED TO USE THE LINK IN THE EMAIL TO REGISTER.
