David O’Keefe has been a fully accredited coach with Football Federation Australia since 1990 and therefore provides a wealth of coaching knowledge and experience gained locally and abroad. David has travelled extensively throughout Europe over the past 15+ years and during that time has been fortunate enough to visit and learn from some of the best academy and 1st team coaches at clubs such as Liverpool FC, Manchester United FC, Chelsea FC, Cardiff City FC, PSV, Feyenoord and more recently with Hamburg FC and Basel FC.
His ability and reputation to mentor and develop young players is well documented with many of the players he's coached over the past 20 years (grass roots & elite players) still maintaining contact with him well beyond their junior playing days and this is a direct result of the positive impact he's had on their development both on/off the field. David is constantly updating his knowledge and in doing so has developed some very strong personal and working relationships with internationally recognised academy coaches, 1st team coaches and technical directors at some of the above mentioned clubs as a direct result.
FFI work closely with two major european clubs as their 'talent scout' in Australia and this once again reinforces the level of trust David has developed with his contacts overseas over the course of the past 15+ years. This is an exciting phase for the business and it also reinforces our motto of continually striving to "open the door to opportunity" for footballers in Australia (boys, girls, men and women).
Current FFI clients include:-
- Blacktown City FC - NSWPL
- Normanhurst Eagles FC - Gladesville-Hornsby Football Association
- Barker College
