Five Myths About the Old Dominion Soccer League (ODSL)
If you’re not familiar with the Old Dominion Soccer League, let us clear up a few myths:

          Myth 1. You already have to be a great soccer player to play in ODSL.

Fact: ODSL is a developmental league, a place where players can learn the game without the intense pressure of competing at increasingly higher levels.  Their motto is Play with Dignity, Respect Your Opponent.

Myth 2: Players have to commit to playing year-round.

Fact: ODSL has two seasons just like recreational soccer and encourages players to play other sports or explore other interests.

Myth 3: It’s very expensive.

Fact. ODSL is not much more expensive than rec soccer.  Teams pay a separate league registration fee and most play in a tournament or two, but since virtually all coaches are unpaid volunteers they also try to keep costs at a minimum. 

Myth 4: There is a lot of travel involved.

Fact: In our area virtually all games are in Northern Virginia, most in Fairfax County.  There is however the occasional away game in a Stafford or a Winchester.

Myth 5: ODSL teams are always practicing.

Fact: Most ODSL teams practice about the same number of hours a week as rec teams – usually twice a week for about 1 ½ hours.
