Player Member Benefits
USA FOOTBALL PLAYER MEMBERSHIP IS POWERED BY OUR PLAYER PROGRESSION DEVELOPMENT MODEL (PPDM)
- PPDM allows USA Football to offer age-specific training and development
- Resources account for the physical abilities and mental capacity based on the player's age
- PPDM resources are delivered by the coach to the player. It is athlete-centered, but coach-driven
- Player membership resources provide an understanding of these capabilities and deliver a plan to maximize player development
- In addition, player membership resources provide parents the information they need to compliment the teaching points that the player is learning on the field from their coach
- Together, parents and coaches are able to play a significant part in the development of a player using consistent language and understanding of the player's abilities
- This is delivered on football's first team-based, closed social network designed specifically to spur player development and training
Player Membership is part of an overall league-wide membership that provides support and best practices to commissioners, a suite of benefits and coaching education for coaches and peace of mind for the parents. It is an important piece of the overall commitment to excellence in a youth football program.
