In the late 1970's, Weil Coerver led in what many consider a “revolution” in the way we coach the game of soccer. As a Dutch European Championship winning coach with Feyenoord became dissatisfied with the lack of emphasis on individual player skills and the emphasis on defensive aspects of the game. Up to that point little or no attention was given to individual player development as many coaches and trainers were unsure on how to “teach” movements. It was then that Weil Coerver developed a clear and concise methodology for teaching player’s ball mastery and 1 vs. 1 skills. The Coerver Method allows players to learn and progress from the basics of ball mastery to a tactical “team-based” curriculum in a structured format.
In 1984, inspired by Wiel Coerver’s teaching philosophy, Alfred Galustian and Charlie Cooke founded what is now known around the world as Coerver® Coaching.
In 2017, many if not, most of the high-level professional clubs around the globe have Coerver Certified instructors that work with their clubs’ youth players.
ODFC Cesena is proud to have Coerver© Coaching as a developmental partner in the education of our Rising Talent Program (RTP) players.
