ODP National Team Selection Camp Rosters

Postby Poloeyes » Wed Mar 06, 2019 4:29 pm

Have the Boys National Team Selection Camp Rosters been posted? Have they even been picked? I thought it was usually done at the end of the ODP Championships?

Anyone have input as to why no All-Stars were selected this year unlike last year?

The inclusion of the All Star kids has to do with what Tournaments are taking place in a given year. Last year was Youth World Championships, which was 2000 and under, and our ODP Youth age was 2001 and Under, so the All Star group was eligible for and Invited to NTSC, as many of them were selected to the National Team. If you look back, the number of 2002 kids on the Youth National Team Roster last year was very small; 6 of 30, with only 1 making the trip to Youth Worlds.

This year, the only tournament for the youth team is the Pan Am Games in Puerto RIco, which is a qualification tournament for the Youth Worlds in 2020. Next year, expect to see the All Star group included in the invite list for Youth NTSC.
