Soccer Summer Camp in Wall, New Jersey
One of the intriguing things about Wall, New Jersey is how much history it holds. Incorporated as a township by the New Jersey Legislature in 1851, the Monmouth County township was named for General Garret D. Wall, a lawyer who commanded a Trenton volunteer company during the War of 1812. Wall also served as clerk of the New Jersey Supreme Court for five years and as quartermaster general of the state for more than 20 years before being chosen to represent New Jersey in the United States Senate from 1835 to 1841.
The town also boasts Allaire village, which dates back to 1822. This historic village came to be after James P. Allaire purchased Howell Works, the largest producing bog iron manufacturing site in New Jersey during that time. The village and surrounding acres were later preserved and gifted to the State of New Jersey to create Allaire State Park as a memorial to Hearst editor Arthur Brisbane, who was the last private owner of the site. The Brisbane family then donated the property to the State to establish Allaire State Park and the Historic Village at Allaire. Another historical place worth a visit is the Old Mill at Tinton Falls, which was built in 1676 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
With plenty to see and do, it’s no wonder Coerver® United chose this place as the site for their award-winning soccer camp. Kids ages 3 and up have the opportunity to join the excellent global coaching program inspired by the teachings of Wiel Coerver and created by Alfred Galustian and Charlie Cooke. Since 1984, we have been recruiting skilled soccer Coerver United coaches to best support the players. To ensure effectiveness, we have a player to coach ratio of approximately 6:1. This way individual skills and small group play are impacted well.
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 teach the individual skills that will produce great results for each player including proper fundamental skills before advanced skills are taught.
Endorsed and recommended by several top federations, associations, club teams and corporations including the French Football Federation, Chinese Football Association, Newcastle United FC and global sponsor Adidas, our goal 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 interfere with training which is why we have indoor soccer available 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.
As summer camps go, 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.
