Open Development Program (Recreational)

2024 Spring Open Development Program (Recreational)

Spring 2024 will see the coming together of both legacy clubs and the creation of the new RUFC Spring Program. The Program consists of two development streams:

  • Open Development Program (Recreational)
  • Advanced Development Program (Competitive)

Open to all genders, this is the perfect opportunity to meet and play with new friends from both clubs in preparation for the 2024/25 Fall season.  Both streams follow the 4 cornered approach to player development:

  1. Tactical
  2. Technical
  3. Social, Emotional & Psychological
  4. Physical

The ODP is open to boys and girls from U5 to U18 (2019-2006). Throughout the season, players will be exposed to a developmentally appropriate coaching program based on Canada Soccer’s Long-Term Player Development curriculum, which offers the ideal development opportunity for every individual in the ODP to reach his or her level in soccer.

Training Schedule

The Spring 2024 ODP will run from April 2, 2024 to June 17, 2024

Tentative Schedules: Schedules are posted below. Please be advised that these schedules are subject to change based on final registrations and field allocations from the City of Richmond. We cannot tell you field location at this point.
