Coerver®Team Training is offered by certified Coerver®Coaches utilizing our Pyramid of Player Development through club-wide programs or to individual teams. Fall and Spring training is available in season-long programs (usually ten weeks long) and Winter and Summer programs are offered in a variety of settings.
Club-Wide Programs are offered in several environments. We can customize a program for your club to train multiple teams and age groups as often as you require. Sixty-minute and ninety-minute programs are available.
Individual Teams willing to train back-to-back with another Coerver-trained team can receive Coerver®Technical and Tactical training. If two teams can practice in succession, then we can provide a coach to train each team for ninety minutes. If three teams can train back-to-back, we can provide a coach to train each team for sixty-minutes.
