What if I can't make any of the training centers?
Based on a recommendation from your club or high school program you will be invited to the Dakota ODP Training Camp. Past participation in the program will also be considered.
If you were unable to make a training center, due to your high school season. You do not need to be recommended to attend the training camp. Any high school age player recommended or not, can attend the training camp.
