Tryouts for the two youngest age group pools for the NY State West Olympic Development Program were recently completed. This year, "district" tryouts held in Binghamton, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, on Saturday September 25th, drew almost 200 players from across New York West. After some difficult decisions were made, selected players were then invited to attend a callback tryout in Rochester on October 2nd.
The talent our state continues to grow, and this newest group of players looks to be ready to continue to raise the level of play throughout our program. The coaching staff faced many difficult decisions in trying to select the final pool players (a cold rainy afternoon didn't make the decisions any easier!). The staff is very excited about the players selected and looks forward to our first indoor training sessions in December.
Congratulations to all of the players selected, and our thanks to those that were not selected at this time. We encourage you to continue to work hard this year, and come back again next fall to give it another shot.
