Florida ODP Leads the Country in Players Selected for Upcoming National Training Camp

Jan 31, 2022



Preparations are underway as Florida gets ready to host the US Youth ODP National Training Camp (NTC) over January 27-30, 2022 at the Sportsplex of Tampa Bay. 

For the ODP National Training Camp, each region has selected its top players from the regional pool at each age group to attend and compete. Players will be put into NTC teams to compete against each other and potentially outside competition. The National Team Coach or a National Staff Coach is present at these events to observe, train, and identify players for placement in the national pool or on a national team.

The Florida ODP program continues to display its strength and deep pool of talented athletes. For the NTC, Florida leads the Southern Region AND the country with most players selected. Florida led with the most girls selected for the event with twenty (20) players, Illinois with second-most at ten (10). Florida tied with Eastern New York for the second-most boys selected with nine (9) players, trailing closely behind Virginia with ten (10) players. Overall, Florida will have twenty-nine (29) players participating at the NTC. The next highest player count was Virginia with seventeen (17) players, then Illinois and Eastern New York with sixteen (16) each.
