The Richmond FC Spring Open (Recreational) Development Program is open to girls and boys born 2017 to 2003 and is a new and exciting soccer program which ensures every child has fun while developing soccer and physical literacy skills. The ODP program also uses soccer as a vehicle to develop social skills and core values such as sportsmanship, teamwork, fair play and respect. The program includes 3 sessions a week (2 training sessions and Saturday games). Programming is developed by Richmond FC Acting Technical Director, David Thorburn.
