“Coerver Coaching is not only effective, it makes practice fun, too. Enjoyment, of course, is the key element in training youth players. I recommend this program to all young players and their coaches” – Franz Beckenbaur
Every Coerver® Colorado program follows a detailed written curriculum. The seven level summer camp curriculum begins with helping players develop comfort with the ball at their feet, then turns to mastering soccer’s essential skills and best habits. Players develop the ability to use their skills with confidence and creativity under ever-increasing pressure, first in the 1v1 situation then in small group settings (2v1, 2v2, 3v1, 3v2, etc.) which are the building blocks of team play. The entire curriculum is evaluated and upgraded annually in order to guarantee active, fast-paced programs of instruction, practice and play.
Our staff members are high school and college coaches and college players. Many of our staff have coached with Coerver® for four summers or more. More and more have been campers in our camps, and we are now growing our staff through an Apprentice Coach Program. Each of our coaches is screened for their ability to work with children and all are trained to teach the Coerver® Method.
The camps are structured to provide a relentlessly positive environment where players are encouraged to “make the maximum effort, continue to learn and improve, and play ‘fearlessly’ ” (not letting mistakes – or the fear of mistakes – stop them.) Camps run 6 hours per day, 9 am – 3 pm, Monday thru Friday. We cannot make up “missed” days at Camp other than Fridays.
Campers work in Teams of 10-14 players of similar age and ability. Much effort goes into creating Teams where no camper will dominate – or slow down – the group. For Monday mornings, the camp roster is initially sorted by age. Returning players are then moved up based on the records we keep from their previous camps. The curriculum for Monday morning is designed to assure the competitive compatibility of the Teams and to make any changes that are needed.
