Soccer Camp in Chestertown, Maryland

“Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages.” That’s one of many famous quotes about leadership by our country’s first president. With George Washington having planted roots in Maryland, it is no wonder Chestertown, Maryland is home to Washington College, the nation’s tenth oldest liberal arts college which was founded in 1782. As the second largest district of restored 18th-century homes located in the Eastern Shore of Maryland’s oldest county, Kent County, Chestertown was founded in 1706 as a major port of entry during colonial times. Chestertown’s Historic District beautifully displays several colonial residences and more elaborate architectural styles from later times. Just one block away on the Chester River lies Wilmer Park, a small park with a breathtaking view of the river, perfect for picnics and fishing.

There is much to see in this rural town and the sights never get old. Speaking of which, new residents, particularly young families, would be eager to know that Chesterton also has a popular soccer camp for kids of all ages. Coerver® United is here to provide a winning global coaching program inspired by the teachings of Wiel Coerver and created by Alfred Galustian and Charlie Cooke. For over three decades, we have recruited the top soccer Coerver United coaches to best support our players, your children. To ensure effectiveness, we have a player to coach ratio of approximately 6:1. This way individual skills and small group play are impacted in a positive way.

Our highly skilled coaches are trained often as new curriculum is developed, and new games and exercises are introduced by Coerver United coaches across the world. The camps emphasize teaching the individual skills that will produce great results for each player. Proper fundamental skills are taught before moving on to advanced skills.

Endorsed and recommended by top federations, associations, club teams and corporations including the French Football Federation, Chinese Football Association, Newcastle United FC and global sponsor Adidas, our main objective is to do as follows:

  • Value winning but not more than character and performance
  • Provide a safe & educational experience that meets best practice criteria

Coerver United also does not let the winter months get in the way of training which is why we have indoor soccer for some of our programs. Some of these seasonal programs include:

First Skills – Developed for ages 2-5, these classes are 30 minutes long and have a player to coach ratio of approximately 8-1. Fun is the central theme during all sessions as skills are introduced and practiced. These young players get to experience the game in a way that fosters physical and social development and improves coordination, confidence and skill.

Performance Academy – For ages 12-14, this program is specifically for those players who are looking to improve their individual skills. Great for all levels of players, the focus is placed on individual skill development and our 4 core move sets with the goal of developing confidence on the ball.

When it comes to summer camp, two types of week-long camps we host are Advanced and Ball Mastery.

Advanced level summer camp is available to players 10 years or older. Players are taught more complicated moves and they are placed into competitive environments with an emphasis on 1v1 and 2v2 play in the morning. Small group tactics are also taught and small-sided games are played featuring fast break attack and counter attacks.

Ball Mastery camps are for those between 6 and 11 years of age. Emphasis is on individual skill development and basic moves with the goal of developing confidence on the ball. Beginning “move sets” are taught and games are played to practice the moves 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 and by the end of the first morning, players are performing moves under full defensive pressure to goal. Results are recorded each day and a finals competition is held on the last day of camp. Group champions are recognized at our award ceremony on Friday afternoon.
