Coerver Camp Levels
First Skills Camp (Ages 4-6)
First Skills camps are conducted by trained Coerver Coaches with a player to coach ratio of approximately 8:1. The camps focus on teaching the individual skills indispensable for success in soccer. Fun is the central theme to all sessions as skills are introduced and practiced in a joyful environment.
First Skills camp mission is to develop a solid soccer foundation based on ball mastery, shooting technique and how to play in 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3 games. We also focus on developing strong listening skills, extended concentration, speedy reactions and core social skills for communication and cooperation. Our #1 goal is to HAVE FUN, develop self confidence and to love the game of soccer!
First Skill camps are offered half-day (9am-noon) for players aged 4-6 years old.
Ball Mastery Camp (Ages 6-11)
Ball Mastery camps are for players with less than 2 years of experience with Coerver Training. The focus of the Ball Mastery level is on individual skill development and our core move sets with the goal of developing self confidence on the ball. Our core move sets are taught in a method that starts with no pressure and slowly adds the pressure of time and/or space restrictions.. Then passive defensive pressure is added while working our way to full defensive pressure. This is done in a progressive training model where we are building our numbers within the game from 1v1 to 2v2 to 3v3. While, each camp day is focused on a technique or move set, first touch is consistently a major theme. By the end of each morning, players are performing the move set of the day under full defensive pressure to goal.
After lunch all Ball Mastery groups receive training in Ball striking/Shooting techniques. The final hour of camp is focused on small sided (4v4) games, with each day offering a new team to play with and a new tournament to win. Group champions are recognized at our award ceremony on Friday afternoon.
Advanced Camp (Ages 10-17)
Advanced camps are for players with 2 or more years of Coerver experience or with a technical competence with our core more sets. Advance camp players should not only “know” the Coerver Move sets but should be able to perform them at game speed.
The Advanced level focuses not only on how the Coerver moves are executed, but also on the “where and when” they should be used in a game. These are the tactical decisions every player on the field must be able to make. The Advanced camps teach more complicated moves and swiftly puts players into competitive environments with an emphasis on 1v1 and 2v2 games. Players are put in many situations requiring decision-making as that is a key ingredient to advanced play. Small group tactics are taught in small-sided games featuring a fast break attacking style of play. The importance of quick transitional play is stressed. Players are encouraged to use their new skills in games, while being given the freedom to express themselves creativity.
After lunch all Advanced groups receive training in Ball striking/Shooting/Finishing techniques. The final hour of camp is focused on small sided (4v4) games, with each day offering a new team to play with and a new tournament to win. Group champions are recognized at our award ceremony on Friday afternoon.
Goal Keeping Camp (Ages 10-17)
A new addition to the Coerver Camp offerings is COERVER GK powered by Pells Keeper School. This course is based on the Pyramid of Player Development of sound goalkeeping principles and techniques. The COERVER GK camp session is structured around the existing field player camps. Keepers will have separate technical training before blending in with the other campers for 1v1s, dealing with crosses, shot stopping, and positional play during live action drills. A great way for the GK to attend the same camp as his/her teammates while still getting the individual technical & positional training he/she needs. The new Coerver GK program offers the perfect opportunity for GK’s to be pushed to achieve the next level.
