Player Development Academy (SB-PDA)


What is SB-PDA?

SB-PDA trainings and clinics are ideal for players wanting to advance their game to the next level, whether it is a beginner wanting to learn fundamentals or a professional wanting to refine and improve their game at the highest levels. 

The 2019-2020 Soccerbook Player Development Academy (SB-PDA) schedule consists of Summer Trainings (June-July), Year-Round Small Group Technical Trainings (August-May), and Winter Clinics (December). We also offer custom clinics, player/coach events, training programs.


Our staff has been teaching high level material and developing players for many years. SB-PDA was derived from World Soccer Inc., a camps and coaching company which was owned and operated by Gary Ireland and Simon Ireland. Later, Gary, Simon and Carine Ireland co-founded competitive youth soccer academy PSV Union FC, enjoying much success at the club and team level. We now provide a variety of player development opportunities through Soccerbook Consulting, with SB-PDA clinics/camps and small groups, as well as special training events with guest coaches. 


Our staff are highly qualified, with European A licenses, United Soccer Coaches National Diplomas, USSF B license, and many years of experience coaching all ages and levels and in a variety of countries. Our coaches have played at pro, semi-pro, national and collegiate levels, and provide high level visual demonstrations and detailed instruction on exercises and techniques that are a critical element of our curriculum and are essential for development of fundamental skills and building a strong foundation in the game.

Our coaching staff also includes former Australian, USA & Canada Womens National Team coach Tommy Sermanni & former Liverpool FC Academy & England youth team coach and Doublepass auditor John Owens.
