In this PDP webinar replay, we host Ben Bartlett, a truly world-class coach developer who currently works as Fulham FC Head of Coaching and spent over a decade at The FA as a National Youth Coach Developer.

Ben is an expert in the area of session design, specifically a constraints led approach – a methodology which ensures your players use information from within the game to develop.

Ben is hosted by PDP Co-founder Dave Wright and PDP Technical Advisor, Dan Wright. Both Dave & Dan were fortunate to have Ben support them during their UEFA A license course and he has previously collaborated with PDP on a Masterclass Discussion called A Progressive Coaching Approach and has shared a number of excellent blog articles on the platform.

This conversation covers a range of topics including:

  • Insights from Fulham FC
  • Constraints led approach to coaching
  • Session Design
  • Challenging why we coach
  • The impact of data and where it fits in youth development
  • Questioning whether the ‘Principles of Play’ exist
  • Audience Q&A

This is must watch for any coach wanting to advance their thinking around practical delivery, session design and understanding constraints led coaching.
