Coerver® Coaching UK are delighted to announce that general booking is now open for the 2015 Youth Diploma course in England.

On-line booking was temporarily suspended this morning due to a technical issue caused by a high volume of bookings at 09:00 a.m. Our IT department have resolved the issue and bookings can now be made.

Following four hugely successful years since the course launched in 2011, the Youth Diploma will again be delivered exclusively by Coerver® Co-founder, Alf Galustian and will take place in Stoke, London & Birmingham between May-June 2015.

Coerver® UK Director, Scott Wright said of the course “Over the last four years, our Youth Diploma course really has evolved into the must attend course for coaches working with young players at all levels. Attendees have traveled from twenty five different countries from around the world to date and our 2015 Youth Diploma courses are shaping up to be our biggest and best to date”.

Scott added “Due to the unprecedented interest we have had in the 2015 dates in England, we introduced a Priority Booking window which enabled coaches that registered an interest through our website to book before the dates were released generally which has happened this morning”.

“This window was available between 09:00 a.m. on Monday 3rd November and 09:00 a.m. this morning (Wednesday 5th November). At the time of writing we have sold over 50% of all available places during the priority booking window which shows the huge level of interest in the course”.

“The course dates are still over 6 months away so this uptake reflects the fact that during the pre-registration period, we have had three inquiries for every place we actually have available. I must stress that if you want to attend the Youth Diploma course in England during 2015, you will need to book as soon as you can as we had many disappointing people who missed out in 2014”.

Coerver® Coaching UK are delighted to announce that general on-line booking is now open for the new Play Like the Stars 1 v 1 coach education courses which will be taking place during November 2014.

This follows a priority booking window that was made exclusively available to previous attendees of the Coerver® Youth Diploma course and coaches that have registered their interest in attending the 2015 Youth Diploma course next summer.

Our new Play Like The Stars coach education course, in association with our global partner adidas® and our presenting partner FourFourTwo Performance will focus specifically on the topic of 1 v 1 and will provide attendees with our latest content in this most vital area of the game.

Four, 1-day courses will be delivered across the country at professional club training facilities with Birmingham City FC, Sheffield Wednesday FC, Millwall FC and Stoke City FC all hosting courses.

The courses will be delivered by Coerver® Coaching UK Director, Scott Wright (See above image – 2014 Youth Diploma – Fulham FC) who said “We are really looking forward to delivering our new Play Like The Stars course across the country next month. We have selected four areas of the country to host our courses which should be accessible within two hours of pretty much any part of the country so these are definitely our most accessible open coach education courses to date”.

“The topic we have chosen for our new course is 1 v 1 which is an absolutely crucial area of the modern game and is a teaching subject that we have championed for over 30 years. We have a vast amount of knowledge and resources within this topic area that we feel is vital for every coach of young players to know and understand”.

Scott added “Certainly from a personal point of view, this topic has had little to no coverage in any licensed coach education course that I have attended. When you consider this is an individual player quality that can really make the difference in the game with teams being ever more organised and difficult to break down, in my opinion 1 v 1 should form a key component of these courses, especially those that are aimed at coaches of young players but this doesn’t seem to be the case from my experience”.

“I’m sure that attendees of this course will find the content both useful and valuable to the development of the players that they work with, no matter the age or level of ability and they will leave the course with a good understanding of how to teach 1 v 1 from mastery to game effective use”.
