Coerver® Coaching held their first ever Advanced Skills Course for Coaches recently in Crans Montana, Switzerland. 80 coaches attended from over 20 countries including a majority of Coerver® Coaching’s EMEA Directors, and a number of coaching staff from their respective countries.

Crans Montana, which is a ski resort in southwestern Switzerland, sits in the heart of the Swiss Alps in the canton of Valais sitting at an elevation of 1,500m above sea level. Due to it’s unique location, many proffesional teams use Crans Montana as a pre-season training base with French giants Olympique Marsellie using the facility only a couple of weeks before the Coerver® Advanced Skills Course.

The facility also hosted the Holland national team in advance of EURO 2012 and the facility proved to be a fantastic location to host this world first course for Coerver® Coaching.

The three day intensive course included lectures and sessions presented by Coerver® Coaching co-founder, Alf Galustian. Special guest experts included former Scotland Captain John Collins, Newcastle United Academy Director, Joe Joyce and Dr Andrei Stoian, MD (see below images).

The coaches received a training session by John Collins demonstrated by youth players from Swiss pro team FC Sion. Joe Joyce gave an excellent presentation into youth development at Newcastle United which was complimented by a top class practical session for attending coaches.
