Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions:

What is Player Development Project?

Player Development Project is the world’s largest collection of learning resources for coaches.

Since 2014 we have been providing soccer coaching material to a global community of like-minded coaches. We have a network of contributors from around the world who contribute their articles, ideas, and innovations to our community – we publish new material several times each week. Our contributors are coaches, researchers, parents, and innovators who are working hard to improve the environments we create for players.

At the core, the PDP team is a group of soccer coaches and players who love learning.

Our Goal: To create a community of coaches who are armed with the latest research, practical tools, and big ideas to unleash the potential of their players.


Is PDP Membership only for soccer coaching?

No.  We started as an exclusively soccer coaching resource, but as our community has grown, we have found common foundational ideas which cross sports and environments.

Our community is now made up of coaches from a range of different sports, as well as teachers, parents, and anyone interested in learning about developing people.


Is PDP Membership is right for me?

PDP Membership is not for every coach.

If you are a coach who believes that you no longer need to continue learning, PDP Membership is not for you.

However, if you are always looking to improve your understanding of the game, and your understanding of how to maximise the potential of your players, then PDP Membership is for you.

Whether it’s your first season or your 30th season, you will be joining a community of like-minded coaches who are focussed on continually learning from the latest research, from exploring big ideas, and from value driven experts who are innovating in player development.

Every week we will email you with new members-only content to help take your coaching to the next level.


What if I want to cancel my membership?

PDP Membership can be cancelled anytime.


What happens when I join?

Once you have joined Player Development Project you will be able to immediately start exploring our premium content, including Masterclass Discussions, PDP Magazines, Video Session Plans and Research Reviews.

You can also start or join a discussion with other PDP Members in our Innovation Space – a members-only discussion forum where we discuss everything from session planning for your team, to soccer coaching philosophies and playing style.


Can I buy a membership for my club or organisation?

Yes – we work directly with clubs and organisations, and we can put a package together specifically for your needs.

We can also keep your coaches engaged with custom live online events.
