OSC's Open Development program is available to players between the ages of U6-U15 (2014-2005) who would like to further develop their soccer skills.
ODP is led by OSC's highly qualified and knowledgeable coaching staff. This program is ideal for experienced soccer players who wish to enhance their skills, and for players who are new to the sport and would like to learn more and gain more experience on the field. As this is an individual development program, players are placed into groups based on their age. Throughout the program, players might be moved into a different group according to their ability levels to ensure they are placed in an environment conducive to learning.
The Open Development Program's training curriculum is centered around the Canadian Soccer Association's Long Term Player Development (LTPD) program. ODP covers key skill development years in LTPD (U6-U15) and consists of activities that help players get a feel for the ball while teaching basic technical fundamentals of the game in a FUN but structured setting.
OSC's Open Development Program offers a player pathway for aspiring players wishing to be part of the Club's Advanced Development Program (ADP) and Competitive Program (RDP). Player Identification is an ongoing process and players who show signs of potential may, at any time during the program, be invited into an ADP or RDP practice by OSC's Grassroots Progams Manager.
Players will be taught the following skill sets of the game that are age and stage specific to their development:
- Age and stage appropriate movement skills
- Ball manipulation skills
- Individual attacking principles
- Ball striking techniques
- Passing and possession skills
- Small sided games
