Redefining Success: An Individual Approach

UEFA A licensed coach & PDP Editor, Dave Wright discusses why an individual approach to player development is crucial after recently presenting at a conference in Australia. The presentation was based on his philosophy, PDP research and experience from his time at Fulham FC.


Recently, I was fortunate enough to be invited by Football Federation Victoria (the state governing body for football in Victoria) to present at their State Coaching Conference in Melbourne. I was given freedom to choose a topic, but encouraged to push a message which would shake things up a little bit. Throughout this article, I will share several the slides from the presentation and don't forget to look out for the full version in Masterclass video form in the New Year.

Having only recently arrived in Australia after almost 5 years in England, I have spent a good amount of time meeting with local clubs, A League clubs and staff at Football Federation Australia, discussing the local landscape and some of the cultural challenges that player development in Australia is facing.
