FDC Philosophy & Values

Our Philosophy

To create a safe and elite environment for players to flourish, learn and develop.

Our Values

Our players have a responsibility regardless of system to ensure they display the following qualities:

  • BE HARDWORKING

    This is a basic fundamental requirement for all players at our development centre regardless of age.

  • HIGH TECHNICAL ABILITY

    All of 0ur players must be able to handle the ball in a way that allows them to be successful.

  • PLAYERS MUST STRIVE TO WIN

    The result at this stage is not the most important factor but the will to gain the right result is. This applies to both individual players and collectively in group challenges.

  • BE PREPARED

    For whatever test is given to them.

  • PLAY WITHOUT FEAR / BRAVERY

    By far the one of the biggest factors effecting young players. Fear must be challenged head on by expressing themselves.

  • BE WILLING TO MAKE MISTAKES

    The FDC encourage players to test their ability and strive to improve. In order to do this, players must make the mistakes first and then learn from them.

  • MAINTAIN A HIGH TEMPO

    All of our players must be able to maintain a high level of intensity during sessions.

  • MAINTAIN A POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT

    All of our players must understand that to be a part of the FDC family they are willing to be positive towards others and help create a positive environment to learn.
