The Coerver® Coaching Youth Diploma 2 course expands on the knowledge gained from the Youth Diploma 1 course with a focus  on how to develop a team style through individual and small group skills teaching both in and out of possession.

What skills individually and in small groups do players need? What do you teach them? How do you teach? Not only the skills and tactics, but also the mental and attitude aspects.

A particular focus of the course is to show how to develop individual players that are multi-positional, both attackers and defenders, with all practices and games being adaptable to players of all ages and abilities.

The Coerver ® Coaching Youth Diploma 2 is a 2-day course that has been broken down into 4 modules that will be presented through lecture presentations & practical demonstrations:

Module 1 - Coerver® Approach To Team Play (Theory) & Developing the Coerver® Player (Practical)

Module 2 - Coerver® Team “Code” Defence (Theory) & The Box/Trap Defence (Practical)

Module 3 - Coerver® Team “Code” – The Attack (Theory) & The Box/Trap Attack Part 1 (Practical)
