Coach Great Soccer is suitable for coaches of players of all abilities and ages, especially those between the ages of five and 16, between which time young players go through the ‘golden years of learning.'
As well as benefitting your players, coaches employing the Coerver Method will:
- Learn the secrets to effective skills coaching
- Have more ideas and drills for their sessions
- Help create fun and challenging sessions for the whole season
Skills are the building blocks of great players, yet many coaches spend too much time coaching tactics.
The result… one dimensional players that produce unattractive and, ultimately, ineffective football teams.
As soon as these teams come up against players of superior skill they are “found out”.
Hiding their weakest player in a crowded midfield suddenly doesn't cut the mustard – if only they'd spent their time making their weakest player that bit stronger!
But why do so many coaches get it so wrong, so often?
Most coaches fall into one (or more!) of the following common coaching traps:
Trap 1: The scoreline matters
A skills based coaching philosophy is not going to deliver results overnight. With the myriad pressures on coaches – even volunteer youth coaches – many think they can't afford to follow a skills program.
Trap 2: You can't coach what you can't do
Even coaches that recognize the need to follow a skills program and would like to do so, don't. They're held back by their own inability to perform the skills involved. How can they expect their players to execute a step over when they themselves cannot?
Trap 3: Skills coaching is repetitious and boring
My players aren't going to enjoy it, they just want to play games.
Trap 4: You've got it or you ain't
Lots of “coaches” believe that skills simply can't be taught. They look at the players on TV and think that they're born with it.
Invest in Coach Great Soccer and you'll discover why these beliefs are no more than myths.
We'll give you the conviction to introduce a coaching philosophy at your club that ignores the incessant calls to Win At All Costs with a style of coaching – and ultimately the quality of player – that will gain you and your team the respect of your peers, your players and their parents.
We'll arm you with the moves you need and explain them step-by-step so that you can show your players what they need to do with confidence. And we'll give you a set of homework assignments that allow players to work the skills through, building confidence on their own before the players themselves demonstrate the correct technique to their team mates.
We'll smash the myth that skills coaching is boring. You'll gain the knowledge to put together fun and varied coaching sessions that will keep your players coming back for more. Your biggest challenge won't be the number of players that want to leave your club, it will be the number that want to join!
“Messi is a one off. But I'm certain that everything he does can be taught.” Yes, I did say that. And, Yes, I wholly believe it. In Coach Great Soccer I'll show you why and how you can teach those skills to your players.
