2006 ODP Player Pool Announced
We can continue chatting about 06 ODP here.
Someone brought up the omission of 06s playing up...
Beach FC Perez, not enough nominations?
Wow, 2006. What happened to 2005? Did they skip over that age group?
I anticipated 05s getting their nods after National Cup but 06 ODP was unexpected but not surprising, consideringredients revenue after camp cost and # of kids. Strange to start this process with a group still on the small field but the scene is always changing...
They post 05's till NC is over. That's where they do their scouting.
2005s still have Natonal Cup where ODP Scouts will be finalizing nominations.
Just off the top of my head...
Anaheim Surf - 8 players
S.D. Surf EGSL - 5 or 6 (SDSURF ACD)?
Galaxy SB - 7 players
Don't want to call out anyone specifically, but Beach Perez only getting 1 player and some clubs with lesser talent getting multiple selections seemed wrong. I paid attention during the season and tried to learn the names of the girls who impressed me the most. They're all here, except the Beach Perez girls, 4 in particular (winger, outside back, and both center mids)
Yes, there are quite a few 06's playing up that I can name that are not on that list. Your daughter to start with, two from LAGSB, one from Beach SB, one from Beach LB, and one from OC Strikers.
There are also quite a few 07's on that list too.
I'm sorry did you say 8 (2006) players from Anaheim Surf or 7? cause I see a .... haha and the drama continues
Eagles 06 playing up, that in my opinion is the best player on the 05 team is also omitted from this list.
Right! Willy's kid! Great player!
What is the criteria that the scouts are looking for?
Players with their paperwork in order?
ODP is typically looking to form the strongest team to compete regionally and amongst the player pool you'll find technical players, athletic players, and hybrid players.
Something I found awhile ago about what ODP looks for, ymmv:
TOUCH ON THE BALL: Does the player have control over the ball with both feet? Can he/she make the ball do
what he/she wants while in possession? Does the player look comfortable with the ball under pressure?
BALANCE: Is the players in control of his/her body? Is the player able to change direction in a controlled manner with the ball?
TECHNICAL SPEED: How fast does the player control the ball and play it?
Does the player have the ability to use good skill quickly?
COACHABILITY: Can the player carry out a directive from the coach? While many young players are tactically weak,
a good player will be coachable, and therefore have the ability to develop good habits?
WORKRATE: Is the player willing to push him/her self to the limits? Does the player attack and defend?
AWARENESS: Does the player see good opportunities to pass/dribble/shoot? Does the player have vision
of what's happening on the field or does he/she make the game difficult?
REACTION TO FAILURE: How does the player respond to a bad call or a mistake?
Does failure result in a drop in performance?
LEADERSHIP QUALITIES: Does the player communicate to others? Does he/she demand the ball?
Will they take charge when the game is on the line?
PHYSICAL SPEED: Is the player fast? Does the player have enough speed to be effective without being exploited by opponents?
SIZE & STRENGTH: Is the player physically able to play with bigger opponents?
Is the player's size the reason for his/her success (especially at younger ages)?
Congratulations to all of the girls nominated. Your hard work is paying off. Wishing you continued success.
Congrats to all the girls who got selected!!!
Seems a bit strange Eagles only has 1 girl and Socal academy has 3 girls these teams had more talent than what's being represented..In the other hand you have a couple of bronze teams the have more girls being selected the Pal teams has 4 and the Ventura Premier has 3 girls...
Consider this..... there wasn't one girl from San Diego County selected for the final 04 team that traveled to AZ. It didn't matter much at the end of the day. They still dominated every other team. Just saying, however.
