At the conclusion of each ODP season the following boys and girls players are not required to tryout for the next season’s Indoor Pool - i.e. they are automatically included in the next season’s Indoor Pool:
Age Group Players Exempted from Trying Out
U-13 Players on the ’99 NYW ODP Tournament A and B Teams are exempted from the U14 tryouts in 2012/13.
(Any 00’s participating on these teams are likewise exempted from U13 tryouts in 2012/13)
U-14 Players on the ’98 NYW ODP Tournament A Team only are exempted from the U15 tryouts in 2012/13.*
*Please note: B Team players in this age group are required to tryout.
Each year the age group that transitions from U-14’s to the U-15’s, experiences moving from an age group that has two teams competing at the ODP Tournament (ie. this year’s ’98’s sent an A team and a B team), to an age group that will only send one team to the ODP Tournament. Correspondingly, the U-15 pool is smaller than the U-14 pool because it now is sending only one team to the ODP Tournament. As such, only the A Team players from the U-14 age group are exempted from trying out. (Rationale: If both the A and B teams in this age group were exempted from trying out, then the U-15 pool would already be at capacity and there would be no room to look at new players).
U-15 Players on the ’97 NYW ODP Tournament Team are exempted from the U16 tryouts in 2012/13.
U-16 Players on the ’96 NYW ODP Tournament Team are exempted from the U17 tryouts in 2012/13.
Alternates in 2012 are not exempt and are required to tryout in 2012/13.
All players exempted from tryouts must pay the indoor training registration fee for their respective age group by the required deadline to secure their place in the pool.
