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.
