U14 Girls & Boys OSDP

U14 Ontario Summer Development Program (OSDP)

The U14 Ontario Summer Development Program (OSDP) is for athletes who strive to grow their personal, social and athletic skills through involvement in programming that emphasizes teamwork, leadership and learning. OSDP is the latest iteration of Ontario Basketball’s Talent Identification and Development Program (TIDP). As the landscape of basketball in Ontario changes, so too does our programming - and the rebranding of TIDP to OSDP is a reflection of this new landscape, while also remaining true to the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model. The rebrand is less about programming or structural changes, and more about effectively communicating the nature of the programming that we offer. OSDP is an opportunity to develop the WHOLE person (with camp as a true growth opportunity) - talent is not the only outcome or objective.

OSDP provides athletes with a well-rounded basketball experience allowing them to work on their game in the offseason. Training sessions combine the fundamental movement skills of coordination, balance and agility with age-appropriate basketball skills in a fun and inclusive environment. Sport is a training ground for life, and through OSDP (working with new coaches and teammates, learning new skills, and attending camp) athletes have the opportunity to develop physically, socially and emotionally.  

The province is divided, for OSDP training purposes, into 12 regions. However, we have not had complete participation from all 12 regions in recent years. The goal for 2017 is to have 10 regions run training session pods across the province. Regional participation will be contingent on coach interest/availability as well as participant numbers. We will endeavour to facilitate training sessions in regions that have a maximum number of participants (20). This might mean that certain well-populated regions may have more than one training session pod.

To participate in the OSDP program, coaches fill out an application form that includes their experience, interests, and references. Coaches work with their pod at training sessions and are involved in running activities for all athletes at the centralized camp. Coaches sign Conflict of Interest and Coaching Agreements and OSDP programming is run separately from club programming. Coaches for U14 are certified at the Train to Train level and must submit a valid police record check. We encourage ALL athletes to try out and benefit from different coaching styles, teammates, and experiences. 

The Program has 3 Stages:

1. Open Tryouts

Tryout information and program locations will be posted below. From the open tryouts, 20 athletes will be selected to train as a group.

Tryouts are open to athletes born in or after 2003 and every athlete receives a t-shirt at the tryout.

2. Training Sessions

The 20 selected athletes will train for 30 hours as a group in a training session pod. Training dates will vary by region and will be set by the coach. Coaches will deliver programming that builds fundamental movement and basketball skills that align with the LTAD Model. The training environment will emphasize learning and fun with skill progressions for Train to Train athletes.

Cost for Training: $300 ($10/hour)

3. Centralized Camp

10 athletes from each training session pod will be selected from the 20 to attend an overnight camp. At camp, athletes will be exposed to a variety of team concepts and special guests will drop in to offer their expertise and advice to all campers. Camp is an excellent opportunity for athletes to learn and grow on and off the court!

In an effort to continue to improve our programming and the experience for our athletes, OSDP camps in 2017 will be held at Athlete Institute (AI) in Mono, Ontario. AI is a top end high-performance facility that will provide a unique basketball experience for athletes and coaches alike. In addition to the indoor facilities (including a full gym, a half-court with shooting machine, and a complete athletic therapy clinic), athletes will have access to a turf field (dome), outdoor soccer field, and three outdoor basketball courts. Our programming will expand to include more and diverse, new activities as a result of the increased number of amenities. Our athletes will also be the only guests on the premises during camp and will enjoy the safety, security and bonding experiences that come with exclusive access.

Cost for Camp: $375 ($107/day for meals, accommodation, training)

Camp Dates: July 16th - 19th (U14 Girls), July 19th - 22th (U14 Boys)

For all OSDP inquiries, please contact Marlon Piedrahita 

Financial difficulty should not be a barrier to participation. Ontario Basketball wants to give every athlete the opportunity to participate in both the regional training and, if selected, the overnight camp. For financial assistance, please visit the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Website.

NOTE: Athletes that do not have an OSD program in their region are free to tryout for a training session pod in another region. These athletes will automatically be granted an exemption but will nonetheless have to submit an Exemption Form to Marlon Piedrahita.
