East Region ODP Tournament
What is the East Region ODP Tournament?
The East Region ODP Tournament is held for U12-U17 ODP teams from participating state associations within the East Region. The tournament is held the first weekend in June and hosted at Rider University, New Jersey for the girls and Kirkwood Soccer Complex in New Castle Delaware for the boys. The tournament committee creates randomly scrambled brackets for all age groups where games are held on Saturday and Sunday. Should a team successfully advance to the semi-finals, relevant information will be provided to the team at that time and play will continue into Monday (semi-finals) and Tuesday (finals), creating a long weekend.
The tournament is attended by much of the East Region Staff dedicated to spending time, watching and evaluating all players at least once over the course of the weekend to assist them in the identification process for selecting players to invite to ODP Identification Camp. Additionally, the tournament is highly attended by college coaches from around the country.
