Foot Skills,One-on-One Games, and More
“The team that wins the majority of the individual duels in a game will win the majority of the games.” – Anson Dorrance

Strong one-on-one skills are a huge asset for a soccer player. Just about every game situation includes individual attacking and defending.1v1 play is at the heart of Coerver® training and instruction. Our Academy programs are designed to focus on Ball Mastery Skills. Academy programs also include technical work each session on striking the ball, to increase power and accuracy with both feet.


Who it is for

Players who want to improve their individual technical skills.  Academy Programs are for players in ages 7-15 with prior Coerver® experience or Club level that have been evaluated at a Coerver AZ training session. New players typically start at developmental level on day 1 and will be moved as needed.  The main difference is the speed with which we teach the moves sets. 

Our aim is to develop confident and creative players while teaching essential social skills such as good sportsmanship and respect, in addition to a good attitude to practice and play. The PA is a progressive series of instruction in Ball Mastery, Receiving and Passing, 1v1 Attacking skills, Speed (including the speed of thought), Finishing and Group Play.  All this results in improving player’s ball control, 1v1 skills, creativity, speed of play and overall Soccer IQ.

The Performance Academy Enrollment and Placement

Players ages 7-15 will be grouped in 3 different Level Programs; Developmental, Advanced and Elite. Parents may register players for the appropriate level based on prior Coerver experience.  Our Elite players have regularly trained with Coerver over a year and have mastered the basic moves set.   A Coerver Staff Coach will recommend changes as necessary in session 1 to ensure players are not over challenged or under challenged as success breeds confidence. 

-Developmental Academy - is open to competitive players as well as players aspiring to be more competitive players. Players will focus on learning the basic moves set (right/left foot) along with receiving/passing skills.  1v1 moves will be learned to keep possession and create space and time to pass, run or shoot.  Finishing skills will be incorporated.  Key focus is on proper skills technique.

-Advanced Academy - when offered, this will only be open for players who have been part of  Coerver events in the past and are recommended for the Advanced Level by a Coerver Staff. It is also available for ODP level players, including Premier teams and players who possess technical qualities to be a part of the Advanced level. Players will learn how to combine the many moves into combination play in 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 activities.  An element to increase mental and physical speed of play will be added.  The group play activities will incorporate defense, fast break attack and combination play.  

-Elite Level (See Center of Excellence tab)- when offered this program will only be open to players who have been part of the Coerver Advanced Academy for at least a year and are recommended by a Coerver Staff from camps or other programs.  Players must demonstrate mastery of basic moves (both right/left foot) and ready to progress to more complex activities and combination play. 
Typically players are 11+ years of age and have attended several Coerver camps/academies.  (top test scores from camps)

Players will learn how to combine the many moves into combination play in 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 activities.  An element to increase mental and physical speed of play will be added.  The group play activities will incorporate defense, fast break attack and combination play.

Information:  Each session’s warm-up kicks off with footwork exercises to improve foot speed and comfort with the ball. Warm-ups will also focus on some of the dozens of ball moves that we teach at Coerver®. Using those moves becomes a major component in the rest of the session. Different one-on-one games will be used to isolate specific elements of 1v1 play. Then we’ll take one of those games and expand it to 2v2 and 3v3 – but always with an emphasis on the “individual option.”
