A few short weeks ago, ASA announced the ODP Regional Tournament was cancelled but that we would be bringing US Soccer and US Youth Soccer scouts to the final weekend of ODP Pool Training. As with so much we have all encountered over the past nine months, COVID has forced us to now announce the cancellation of the remainder of ODP Pool Training.
Due the continued rise in cases throughout Arizona and the United States, both US Soccer and US Youth Soccer are not permitting scouts to travel at this time. After much thought and review of the ASA COVID protocols, it was determined that to minimize the chances of widespread quarantining, ending ODP Pool Training was the right thing to do.
All participants will be receiving a $100 refund. All refunds will be processed and returned no later than December 15th, 2020.
For those of you whose player has not received their sweat shirt, we will post office hours for pick-up after the Thanksgiving holiday.
We share in the disappointment of this announcement. However, we feel this is the responsible and sensible decision given the circumstances.
In closing, it is important that we take a moment to recognize all the players, families, coaches, staff and volunteers that came out to tryouts and pool training sessions, allowing for a successful albeit shortened 2020 ODP season.
ASA and the ODP staff thank you for all you have done to support the players through not only the ODP process but every day in supporting your clubs and helping to keep games on the field.
