At PointSport, PdV runs an annual program with sports practice 5 days a week from 8am to 10am. There are currently 30 children enrolled in the program. The coaches are Vietnamese (from the Phu Tho Stadium) and volunteers from abroad. The different sports the children are taught are taekwondo, soccer, volleyball, basketball, swimming, badminton, rugby and athletics.

PdV provides lunch to the children and afternoons are spent studying English and IT.
