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.


PDP Membership can be cancelled anytime.


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 coaching philosophies and playing style.

Thanks for taking the time to check out Player Development Project.

 We wish you all the best with your coaching whether you join today or not.

“I think that the PDP membership is awesome! Great value for money and full of really useful information and knowledge. I have found the masterclass sessions to be very helpful, and I have incorporated the relevant knowledge from the academic article reviews in the training program I run for my team.”
