STYSA conducts training sessions called Training Centers to identify and assist in the development of top level players in South Texas. These Training Centers serve as an introduction to ODP, giving parents and players an opportunity to experience the program while learning what will be expected of them, as well as, what they can expect from ODP.  Each year these Training Centers are open to the three youngest years of eligibility  The September and October 2014 Training Centers will be for players born between January 1 and December 31 of 2001, 2002 and 2003.  The STX Training Centers are geared to improve each player’s technical proficiency and tactical awareness. The demands presented to each player during the sessions will prepare them for the upcoming tryouts for the South Texas ODP Training Pool and the potential to represent South Texas at Region III camp in the summer. Region III gives players the opportunity to be in front of over 100 college coaches, national scouts, professional teams, as well as, the possibility of international travel if selected.  Choose a location convenient for you and register TODAY!  The $95 registration fee pays for BOTH Sundays in the city you register for.  You are welcome to register and participate in more than one city.  Click here to email Denise Churchill any quesitons you may have.
