I can tell you my experience with ODP competitions have not been positive to say the least. RI has never done well at Region 1 that is all I have to say and it is a reflection of the quality of our program.
Not entirely true. Though drawing from a small pool of players in RI, there have been RI ODP teams that have done well in the Region 1 tournament over the years. Both boys and girls.

Y soo negative. For players playing in town competitive programs and lower division premier programs, ODP provides great additional training for them to develop their technical skills. There are some some very good technical coaches such as JC and MY still there.

Wrong. ODP is what you put into it. Extra training and touches with different coaches is never a bad thing especially at a fairly reasonable price. The College and R1 clinics can be beneficial to get on some early radar, and of course gaining access to the R1 Camp is really the main benefit above U13, especially for those who choose not to go the DA route, which forbids it. It also helps even more if your child’s particular age group is a strong one (03 boys & 04 girls for example)

Ask the 2 kids who made the Region 1 travel teams if ODP is a farce. Once in a lifetime experience for those kids.
