Coerver® Coaching kicked off their 2013 European Youth Diploma courses in Spain with a two-day course hosted by Spanish footballing giants, Real Madrid CF at their world class Ciudad Deportiva del Real Madrid training centre in Valdebebas (see below image).
Over 70 coaches attended from all across Spain including Sevilla, Coruña, Barcelona, Madrid, Albacete and Jaén. Ten coaches from the Real Madrid CF Academy and the Head of the Madrid Coaches Association attended in addition to former Spanish Pro player, Diego Camacho, who was attending his second Coerver® Coaching Youth Diploma course.
Alfred Galustian, Coerver® Coaching Co-Founder delivered the course and said “I have worked at some of the top football clubs all over the world and have never seen a better training facility than here at Real Madrid. It was fantastic to come back to work here and to see so many coaches come from clubs all over Spain including a large group of academy staff from Real Madrid”.
A highlight of the event was the attendance of Eduardo Oliveira, from the Brazilian Football Association (CBF) Technical Department. Eduardo who also works for Botafogo FC had travelled from Rio de Janeiro specifically to evaluate the course (see below image with Alf & Jimmy Galustian).
Eduardo said “We have of course heard of Coerver Coaching in Brazil, but I did not expect it to be such a high level as I saw on the Coerver Diploma Course that I attended at Real Madrid. I believe that Coerver Coaching is especially effective during the golden ages of skill acquisition (7-16). Alf Galustian the co-founder of Coerver, has a lifetime of experience and is obviously an international expert in technical teaching; we can certainly learn from him and the Coerver program in Brazil”.
