Kentucky Youth Soccer would like to thank every player who recently attended the ODP try-outs. The coaches and evaluators involved with the process of selecting players were extremely impressed with the quality of play and commitment of the players.
Every player that attended the try-outs had hopes and dreams of making it to the next level and with the recent success that Kentucky Youth Soccer ODP players have been experiencing at the regional and national level; each player that does attend only enhances the quality of the program.
Unfortunately, not every player makes it past the first hurdle, but by no means does this spell the end of what could be a bright future within the game. There are many success stories that have happened even when players have failed at the first attempt, including players in the current Kentucky Youth Soccer ODP system who eventually were determined enough to make it through the to the state pool and beyond.
It is the aim of Kentucky Youth Soccer to help and offer the best opportunity for every youth soccer player to move their soccer career and experience on to the next level. If you were not successfully in gaining a spot on the state training pool please take time to reflect on the try-out and evaluate your own performances during the two weekends. If you require further information and feedback on how you can improve so that you can come back stronger next season, you as the player must contact the State Director of Coaching, Adrian Parrish for feedback.
If you have not been successful remember that the opportunity is never taken away from you and that ODP coaching staff are always observing soccer games to look for the best players within the state. Therefore work hard and stay focused on coming back next season to prove you are capable of playing at this level.
Kentucky Youth Soccer would like to congratulate all those players who were successful in earning a position on the state team, but also remind you that this is only the start of the process which requires a lot of your own time, commitment, dedication and work ethic in making the step beyond the training pool.
