Coerver Coaching

Youth Diploma Coming to Galway

After the success of the first ever Coerver Coaching Youth Diploma to be held in Ireland in last August, a second course is now scheduled to take place in Galway on February 4th and 5th 2012.

The course will take place at Mervue United F.C. and is open to coaches at all levels of the game.

96 coaches from 26 different counties around Ireland attended the inaugural Coerver Coaching Youth Diploma at the Oscar Traynor Development Centre in Coolock, North Dublin in August. The diploma was instructed by Alf Galustian and Austin Speight.

Alf is co-founder and International Director of Coerver Coaching as well as being the specialist technical skills advisor to the Premier League in England. Austin is the UK and Ireland Coerver Coaching Director.

Such has been the success of the diploma to date that Manchester United and Arsenal will hold the same course for their staff at both clubs in 2012. Jose Mourinho was also responsible for sending his first team coach Jose Morais (Fellow Portuguese) to Birmingham to attend the diploma. Since then Alf Galustian has travelled to Spain and Real Madrid are now integrating the Coerver Coaching method in to their first team training sessions.

Coerver Coaching is also in the process of launching an Advanced Youth Diploma which will be coming to Dublin in the summer of 2012.

The upcoming Coerver Coaching Youth Diploma which will take place in Galway will see former Scottish international Charlie Cooke make the trip to the west of Ireland to instruct on the course. Charlie Cooke is a co-founder of Coerver Coaching and was recently voted the second best player to play for Chelsea, finishing behind Gianfranco Zola. During his time at Chelsea Charlie won the FA Cup in 1970 and the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1971 defeating Real Madrid in Athens.

In the UK,

Coerver is widely regarded as the No.1 programme for educating coaches and developing top class technical players. The Premier League has appointed Coerver Coaching to provide a training programme for all academy coaches, with a heavy technical focus – the key foundation upon which other parts of the game can be built. This places Coerver at the forefront of player development.

They are endorsed by some of the biggest names in football including Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger, Liam Brady, Franz Beckenbauer, and Gerard Houllier, as well as national associations such as the French Football Federation, the Spanish FA, the English FA, Football Federation of Australia, and the Japanese FA.
