Assessment
  •  During a trial, a player should be evaluated using an LTPD-centered holistic approach (e.g., four-corner model) which would include:
          - Technique unopposed.
          - Tactically, with exercises involving decision making and small-sided games.
          - Physically, with small-sided games and/or 11-a-side play.
          - Mentally, socially and emotionally with player conduct, interaction with others players, work ethic,     commitment and ability to meet the challenges within the game environment.

Selection Process
After a minimum of three(3) trials during the evaluation period, the selection process begins:
  • If the AYSC assessment staff require more time to evaluate a player, he/she will be notified
  • If the AYSC assessment staff have evaluated a player at a minimum of three(3) trials and do not wish to select a player, he/she will be notified
  • If the AYSC wishes to add a player to the roster, he/she can be given a Player Commitment Letter at any time

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Open Trials?
  •  An open trial is open to players who desire an opportunity to demonstrate their ability to participate within an OPDL License Holder and is of the appropriate age for registration and gender for the team’s designation.
  •  OPDL Players are eligible to participate on Open Trials during “Phase II” and “Phase III”.
  •  No more than 35 players should be allowed at each open trial to provide for a more responsible evaluation process.
  •  A player must have the opportunity to attend a minimum of three of these events before a final decision is made on that player.
  •  License Holders are permitted to charge a reasonable fee for a player to participate in an open trial. Fee should be designated to cover operational costs to run trials.
  •  Players may attend more than one open trial simultaneously with different OPDL License Holders.

What are Invitation Trials?
  •  After conducting open trials, invitation only trials can occur at any time in accordance with timelines.
  •  An invitation only trial involves the interested OPDL License Holder contacting and asking for only specific players to return for further trials.
  •  No player shall undertake more than one invitation-only trial at a time.
  •  A player may attend a new invitation only trial once an existing invitation-only trial has been completed.
  •  A player may attend a different invitation-only trial once the organizers of the existing trial have been informed in writing that the player wishes to terminate that trial.

What if a player is not selected?
  •  It is not required for OPDL License Holders to provide verbal one-on-one feedback to players released from an open trial.
  •  Players released from an invitation only trial must be given verbal feedback (minimum 15 minutes with player and player’s parents) as to why they were released.
  •  Once the season has started, there is to be no releasing of players except in circumstances that are driven by and out of the control of the player’s family (e.g., a move out of the province).
