OUR PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
Player Developement Programmes are common place; abbreviations such as PDP, RDP, PDC etc are all spoken about in and around youth football. All are designed to develop young footballers with a view to progressing them through the levels and perhaps one day into the professional game.
Our coaches have worked within these structures at football league clubs, that experience combined with our own philosophy has allowed us to produce a unique programme with a researched and practiced syllabus.
What does the FDE PDP offer?
A safe, fun and challenging environment
30-week course split into three 10x60-minute block coaching sessions (including a fresh area of focus each week)
High quality professional sessions designed to develop each player by qualified, FDE coaches
High quality football learning provision focused on personal progression rather than results driven
Matches against local sides, elite squads and/or academy sides
Performance tests and healthy eating workshop
Reports during the course to track and monitor progress
Commitment to each player's development
Credible links to a number of professional football clubs (get scouted!)
What sets us apart?
Our aim is to constantly improve the players in our programme, we will develop the youngsters we have! We don't look to put individuals on trial or release them to allow room for an influx of new recruits. If your son or daughter has a real passion and desire to improve and a willingness to learn and try new ideas, we will improve them as players!
FDE coaches have gained experience at grassroots level, professional clubs, youth structures in Iceland and have acheived many qualifications through the Football Association and their Four-Corner Model. It is this mixture that has allowed us to produce a unique and exciting programme.
We have real and credible links to a number of professional football clubs and therefore have far-reaching contacts within the game.

All coaches and assistants have carried out advanced DBS checks and hold the latest, FA-approved First Aid and Child Safeguarding certificates.
