<Coerver Coaching Program>

Wiel Coerver (born 3 December1924 in Kerkrade, Limburg) is a football (soccer)manager from the Netherlands, who’s the developer of the Coerver coaching method. He won the UEFA Cup with Feyenoord Rotterdam in the 19731974season. The 1998 FIFA World Cup in France saw the first Coerver student, Boudewijn Zendenwho played for the Netherlands national football team, to make the FIFA World Cup.

*Coerver Coaching Technique*

Coerver Coaching Technique is a soccer coaching technique which Coerver created. By analysing videotapes of various great players including Pelé, devised a new concept in football which advocates that skill could not only be inherent with the young players but could also be passed on in a comprehensive academic way.

Under this technique, players progress in a structured manner, pyramidal, from basics of ball mastery to a tactically driven group attack. They would be exposed to the other essentials like Receiving and Passing, Moves (1v1), Speed and Lethal Finishing.

  • Group Attack

    Exercises and games that improve small group play
    with emphasis on Fast Break Attacks

  • Finishing

    Exercises and games that improve technique and
    encourage instinctive play around the goal

  • Speed

    Exercises and games to improve agility, acceleration
    and power with and without the ball

  • Moves (1v1)

    Exercises and games that teach game winning
    individual moves and create space against packed defences

  • Receiving And Passing

    Exercises and games to improve 1st touch and to
    encourage accurate and creative passing

  • Ball Mastery

    1 player 1 ball. Repetition ball control exercises with both feet
