ODP Tryouts 2019–2020 Registration Information
What is tryout process at the State Level?
In most ages, the tryout process in Georgia starts with Preliminary Tryouts in September followed immediately by the State Tryouts in September or October. Some of the older age groups do not have Preliminary Tryouts due to the smaller number of players involved. In those instances, all the players go directly to the State Tryouts. The Preliminary Tryouts are open for all age-eligible players. Those who do well in the Preliminary Tryouts are invited to the State Tryouts and are joined there by the players who were in the State pools in the previous year. Typically, between 50 to 80 players are involved in the State Tryouts, depending on the age group. At the State Tryouts, a State Pool of 30-40 players is selected (the younger ages tend to have bigger pools than the older ages).
What is the Tryout Fee?
The Preliminary Tryout fee is $45. The State Tryout fee is also $45. When you register your child for ODP tryouts online, you will be prompted to pay the fee. If you advance from the Preliminary Tryouts to the State Tryouts, you will have to register again online for the State Tryouts and pay again the $45 fee.
