Coerver® Coaching UK delivered the first Youth Diploma 1 course of 2015 at Stoke City FC on Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th May 2015 which proved to be a big hit with attendees.
The course, which was launched in 2011, and delivered in association with global partner adidas® and presenting partner FourFourTwo magazine, was the first to take place under the newly structured Coerver® Coach Education pathway which now covers three levels to include the Coerver® Coaching Intro course, Youth Diploma 1 and Youth Diploma 2.
55 coaches from both grassroots and professional levels of the game travelled from all over the UK and Europe to spend 2 days working under the expert guidance of Coerver® Coaching co-founder, Alf Galustian who delivered a series of theory and practical based sessions.
Coaches also had the opportunity to take part in the adidas® miCoach Smart Ball Power challenge which was won by coach Glenn Thornton with a shot recorded at 70 MPH.
The final practical session of the day saw Coerver® UK Director, Scott Wright deliver a session with Stoke City FC’s U11 ATC players allowing the course attendees to see how the information they had learned over the weekend from a coach education perspective could be applied to a live player session.
Scott said of the course “We are really happy with how our first Youth Diploma 1 course went and the feedback we have had from attendees has been tremendous. I would like to thank everyone that made this such a great course. Stoke City were fantastic hosts as always and it was great to work with such open minded, committed coaches during the two days”.
Scott added “Our next course in London at Fulham FC next weekend sold out a number of weeks ago and our final course in Birmingham in a couple of weeks’ time now only has a handful of places remaining so if you want to attend a Youth Diploma 1 course this year in England make sure to book ASAP”.
