* Cost is a one-time fee which covers attendance at both tryout dates regardless of whether players attend one or both tryout dates. It is possible players may have conflicting commitments, and may not be able to participate in both tryout sessions. As a result, it is NOT mandatory to attend all tryout dates. However, players are HIGHLY encouraged to attend as many of the dates as possible to ensure the best possible evaluation(s) for acceptance to ODP. Players should attend the dates in which they are available whenever possible. The coaches will evaluate the players during the sessions in which they do participate
* Within 5-10 business days after the last tryout session, each player will receive a letter of notification via email notifying them about the outcome of the tryouts.  Please ensure that your contact information is accurate when you complete your registration. If you have not received an email after 10 business days, please email Shawn Morgan, NTSSA ODP Administrator, at shawn@ntxsoccer.org. The letter may have gone to a spam folder. I will re-email the letter. Tryouts results will NOT be given over the phone.
