Open Trials

An open trial is open to players who desire an opportunity to demonstrate their ability to participate within an OPDL Licence Holder and is of the appropriate age for registration and gender for the team’s designation.

OPDL Players are eligible to participate in Trials during Phase II and III

In order to provide a more responsible evaluation process, no more than 35 players are allowed at each open trial.  

A player must have the opportunity to attend a minimum of three Open Trials before a final decision is made on that player.

Licence Holders are permitted to, although not recommended, charge a reasonable fee for a player to participate in an open trial. Fee should be designated to cover operational costs to run trials.

Players may attend more than one open trial simultaneously with different OPDL Licence Holders.
