We will have trials players born in 1996-1998 in the Spring of 2013. Players are eligible to attend one of the three sites listed. Boys will have trials on Saturdays and Girls will have trials on Sundays. Dates and sites are below.
The main goal of the Florida Youth Soccer Association Olympic Developmental Program is to identify players for our men’s and women’s Youth National Teams. The selection process takes place through state, regional and national trials. The program also factors into the college recruiting process.
The primary benefit to the player is to be able to try out, train, and play against the best players in their age group. This allows the best players to be with the best in order to further their development as soccer players.
Our State Staff is comprised of professional, college, high school, and club coaches. All of these coaches are nationally licensed by US Soccer. It is the goal of our staff to conduct these trials in a fair and impartial manner.
Note: Players are eligible to attend trials at any location not just their own region.

Olympic Development Program Overview
The Olympic Development Program (ODP) is an essential program inside of FYSA. It is designed to identify national team players early at the youth level, and to provide development opportunities for these potential national team players.
The program offers elite training and coaching for players who have the skills and the desire to take their game to the top level whether that be focused on playing on a national team or enhancing their skills for the road to collegiate soccer. Lucky for them many college coaches work on ODP staff at the state, regional, and national levels.
In most ages, the tryout process in Florida starts with preliminary tryouts in September, followed by 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 Region III pools in the previous year.
Olympic Development Program (ODP) Coaching Staff, Administrators and Volunteers
All Coaches, Administrators, and volunteers that are selected to participate in the ODP program must be cleared by a mandatory online background check. In order for Florida Youth Soccer to process this check, all coaches, administrators, and volunteers must create and complete the registration process through GotSoccer.
