The Coerver® Method has been acclaimed to be the World’s finest soccer skills teaching method. It is a complete soccer education program which basis its’ methodology on our “PYRAMID OF PLAYER DEVELOPMENT”. The foundation of that pyramid is “Ball Mastery”. For without ball mastery, one cannot play an effective game of soccer. Imagine, not being able to control the ball when delivered to your feet or not being able to deliver the ball to your teammate’s feet.
No other soccer teaching method has been recommended and endorsed by such an array of National soccer federations, Professional clubs and so many of the World’s greatest players.
Coerver® Coaching is a complete soccer education program. Our camps and programs are designed to concentrate on individual skills. We group the players first by age, then by ability. We try to make each player feel comfortable with his/her surroundings. We have found that if a camper is comfortable, then he/she is better willing and able to deal with the camp material.
What sets the Coerver® Method apart from all other programs is that our Method uses “match related” drills to develop “quick feet” and a “soft first touch” as the foundation of our “moves” to beat an opponent or to create time and space. These skills appear simple, but each skill requires a high degree of “Ball Mastery.” Our intent is to challenge every player to improve their skills to the extent of their own ability.
