Soccer Summer Camp in Toms River, New Jersey
Located in the Delaware Valley coastal plain about 8 miles southeast of Philadelphia, Cherry Hill is a fairly small township in Camden County. Cherry Hill was a 19th-century farm on Route 38 before the township’s citizens officially chose it as their town’s name in 1961. With an astounding 51 public parks including Haddon Lake Park, which is a large and popular park with a lake for fishing and small boats, several playgrounds, an amphitheater and softball field along with Black Run Preserve, an impressive 1,300 acres with protected Pine Barrens ecology, there is no shortage of places to explore.
Toms River, New Jersey. Located in Ocean County, this township formerly known as the Township of Dover before adopting the name of the largest unincorporated community within the township in 2006, has been the backdrop of a few TV shows and movies including a few seasons of MTV’s Jersey Shore, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and the original The Amityville Horror movie. Speaking of horror, Toms River hosts the second-largest Halloween parade in the world. The village of Toms River is also listed on the national and state registers of historic places. It also boasts 172 miles of a limited access toll parkway called the Garden State Parkway, which stretches the length of New Jersey from the New York line at Montvale to Cape May at the state’s southernmost tip.
You could say residents from all across the state travel here to tour the locations where Hollywood set up shop, but for those who live or are planning to live in this community, Coerver® United is here to offer tours of its growing global soccer coaching program inspired by the teachings of Wiel Coerver and created by Alfred Galustian and Charlie Cooke. Since the 80’s, we have recruited the best soccer Coerver United coaches to 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 experienced 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:
- Develop skilled, confident and creative players
- Make the game fun to practice and play
- Teach good sportsmanship and respect for all
- 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.
