Ontario Summer Development Program

About

The Ontario Summer Development Program (OSDP) is for U12 and U14 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 off-season. 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, athletes have the opportunity to develop physically, socially, and emotionally by working with new coaches and teammates, learning new skills, and attending overnight camp.

Program Structure

OSDP has three stages:

1. Open Tryouts

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

  • U12: 30 athletes
  • U14: 20 athletes

Cost: Free

2. Regional Training

The 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. Certified 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.

Cost: $300 (includes reversible jersey, t-shirt, 30 hours of basketball training, trained coaches, gym fees, and insurance)

3. Culminating Event

U12:

Ten to twelve athletes from each U12 training session pod will be selected to attend a final tournament.  Athletes will be given the opportunity to showcase the new skills they have learned in a round robin and championship tournament.

Cost: TBD

U14:

Twelve athletes from each U14 training session pod will be selected to attend the Ontario Summer Games at the University of Toronto – Mississauga. Athletes will get the opportunity to compete against, and interact with, players from across the province.

Cost: $450

Regions

These regional boundaries should be interpreted first by the listed cities and then by the highway boundaries.

Using South Simcoe as an example, an athlete living in Barrie east of Highway 400 would participate in the South Simcoe regional training pod because they live in Barrie rather than in the Central East pod because they live east of Highway 400.

Financial Assistance

Finances should not be a barrier to participation in the OSDP. Ontario Basketball wants to ensure every athlete has the opportunity to participate in both the regional training and, if selected, the culminating event.
