COERVER® COACHING HISTORY
In the late 1970s, Dutch European Championship winning coach Wiel Coerver led a revolution in soccer coaching. He was dissatisfied with the lack of individual skills and emphasis on defensive play in the professional game; an emphasis that many thought, was stifling the more exciting, attacking style of play necessary to score goals and attract fans.
Up to that point, little attention had been given to individual skill development, because no one knew quite how to teach these skills. It was also, then, widely assumed that the great players of the game were innately gifted far beyond the capabilities of the average player.
Coerver’s early focus was on teaching ball mastery and 1 v 1 skills by encouraging players to emulate the “moves” of soccer’s all-time greats, such as Sir Stanley Matthews, Cryuff, Beckenbauer and Pele.

COERVER® COACHING CURRICULUM
Coerver® Coaching Pyramid of Player Development. Each block combines dozens of games and training exercises for all ages and many have been featured in the Coerver® Coaching book, “Master class” series and the “New Era” video series. All the exercises can be used by both coaches who are planning team training sessions and by players practicing on their own.
Ball Mastery is the foundation of every player’s development and becomes essential for progress through the pyramid. But don’t think of this as a ladder, where one level must be mastered before continuing to the next level. Instead each step is integral to the others and the player improvement is achieved, as the techniques at each level become stronger.
