The Coerver Coaching method was created and developed by Dutch soccer player and coach Wiel Coerver. It was Wiel Coerver who believed young players could learn the game and become great soccer players through training with the ball.
According to Coerver, all word-class players have two things in common: 1. are extremely strong in 1-on-1 situations and 2. are great personalities. The Coerver Method’s main objective is that soccer players practice the skills of word-class players and grow into great personalities. For that reason, Wiel Coerver worked for years analyzing the movements and behavior of superstars and broke down into different levels of difficulty, he then developed training programs for various age and develop mental groups. In 1983, Wiel Coerver met the two soccer coaches, Alfred Galustian and Charlie Cook, who were immediately enthusiastic about his methods, and together they developed the Coerver Method, which quickly spread around the world through classes, books, DVDs and other instructional material.
