The ODP page of our web site will have the most up to date information. Be sure and check this page regularly.
If you know of teammates that should be coming out, please invite them. Registration is ongoing.
Use this link: REGISTRATION.
As part of registration, players will be given at first session, training kits. This will be 2 Numbered Jerseys (1 red and 1 white) and a shorts. We will alternate colors after the first session. Numbers are 1-500 so every player has a unique number. First come first serve, but they are mostly already printed and by size, so if you wear a Large, you will likely not be able to get the #7 you usually wear.
What to wear to first session? If you were in the program last year, wear your orange training top. If not, whatever practice gear you prefer until you receive your training kit.
We will not be taking any forms onsite, so please mail, fax or email your information to the Tulsa office. Email is easiest (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you do not have your player forms submitted before our first training center session, it's not a problem, but do please remit your forms as soon as you are able. (Make sure to register online as well as send forms.)
Forms required for registration (all are found on the US Youth link below but there are 2 pages of forms): FORMS

A copy of medical insurance card (front and back) is also required.

Depends on if Kansas and North Texas decide to join us. We will train as age groups that Saturday morning, then have a cookout and then a Player Development lecture (perhaps even a Parent portion and also a Coaching Education portion for the staff) and then games that afternoon. If the other states come, we'll have another game or two on Sunday.
After this event, the initial State Team Rosters will be created. REMINDER: all players can/should still go to the Training Centers! that's what it's all about! Training and improving as players! Plus, some that get selected initially, will get injured, play their way OUT of the group, or simply decline invitation to the events for various reasons.

US Youth Soccer Association put together a document that describes the type of player(s) who make the Region III team and are successful in that sense. Very good description: What makes a successful ODP player?
