Last month saw the completion of the Coerver® Coaching UK Youth Diploma 1 courses following successful events held at Stoke City FC, Fulham FC & Birmingham City FC.

Following four hugely successful years since the Youth Diploma course launched in 2011, the newly structured 2015 Youth Diploma 1 , in association with global partner adidas® and presenting partner FourFourTwo magazine, proved to be the biggest and best to date with tremendous feedback from attendee’s.

250 coaches from both grassroots and professional levels of the game traveled from all over the UK and Europe to spend two days working under the expert guidance of Coerver® Coaching co-founder, Alf Galustian. The course consisted of both theory and practical sessions, with the coaches learning about the secrets from over 31 years of success of the Coerver® Coaching Programme, with the course theme being based on session planning.

Coerver® UK Director, Scott Wright delivered a number of player sessions across the three Youth Diploma 1 courses, including sessions with Stoke City and Fulham FC academy players. A session was also delivered with a group of Coerver® Performance Academy players from the West Midlands region.

This model session allowed the course attendees to recognise how the information they had learned over the weekend, could be applied to a live player session. Coaches were able to see how and when the session needed to be adapted to suit the individual needs of each participating player which was a key learning outcome for all attendee’s of the course.

Scott said of the course “We are extremely happy with how our Youth Diploma 1 courses went this summer which all sold out well in advance and were attended by coaches of all levels from around the world”.

“Stoke City FC, Fulham FC and Birmingham City FC have been fantastic hosts as always and it was great to work with such open minded, committed coaches during the two days as well as some fantastic young players who were a real credit to their clubs”.

“We have been inundated with requests for places on the Youth Diploma 1 course in 2015 and we are looking at the possibility of delivering another course before the end of the year. We have a registration of interest open for this now, so get in touch if you want to take part in the course this year”.

2015 Youth Diploma 1 Feedback;

“There are many footballing philosophies that we can all learn from and aspire to in the game that we value so much. But with Coerver Coaching, I have truly found one that I can whole heartedly believe in. The Youth Diploma 1 course has been the most pertinent, rewarding and beneficial educational experience in my coaching career to date”.

“Football education and player development should be the corner stone of any coach or organisation serious about making a positive difference in the lives of young people in the game, irrespective of their playing ability. It’s about unlocking that potential and for me, Coerver Coaching have revolutionized the understanding and the impact of this philosophy in their visionary approach to player development”.

“I fully endorse and highly recommend that if any coach is serious about player development, then they need to get serious about Coerver Coaching”.

“A big thank you and respect to Alf Galustian and also Scott Wright and Luke Cheyne from Coerver UK for hosting a most rewarding programme of learning”.
Yogi Deiry - Youth Diploma 1 attendee 

“I did the Coerver Youth Diploma 1 at BCFC. Great course, extremely well presented with a good specific topic. This will definitely help me, and other coaches, plan and deliver better grass roots training sessions”.

“The previous courses I’ve been on, are generally delivered from the point of view of the person delivering the course. To have a course delivered where all the coaches are giving out the same message and are pulling in the same direction, is quite refreshing these days, I look forward to the Youth Diploma 2″.
Jason Adams – Coach and Performance Academy Parent

“I would like to thank Alf Galustian , Peter Bain and the Coerver Staff. There input and knowledge over the two days was thoroughly interesting presenting grassroots/professional coaches an alternative method of developing technical and creative players for the future”.
Sam Woodruff – Barnet FC Academy Coach

“Awesome course, loads of relevant detail, highly recommended if you want to improve session planning”.

Following the huge success of the Coerver® Youth Diploma courses in the UK over the last 4 years which has seen over 1200 coaches from all corners of the globe take part, Coerver® Coaching UK was selected as one of only two regions that would host the new Coerver® Youth Diploma 2 course globally in 2015.

Alongside Coerver® USA who will be hosting a Youth Diploma 2 course later in the year, Coerver® UK will be hosting a Youth Diploma 2 course in London at Fulham FC in June 2015 which will be delivered by Coerver® co-founder Alf Galustian and in partnership with adidas® and FourFourTwo Performance.

Following a registration of interest period in December exclusively for Youth Diploma 1 attendees, a priority booking window opened on Monday for the London course and within 48 hours the course was Sold Out.

Coerver® UK Director Scott Wright said “We were absolutely delighted to have been chosen to host one of only two Youth Diploma 2 courses that will take place globally in 2015 following the huge success of our courses over the last four years. We are as equally pleased that after just 48 hours of the priority booking window opening, the course is sold out which shows the huge demand that there is for knowledge in the Coerver programme”.

“We will have coaches attending from all corners of the globe as well as our own staff and this will certainly be a fantastic coach education event where we will be presenting our new approach to the team game which we are really excited about”.

Coerver® co-founder Alf Galustian (see above image), who will be the lead instructor on the course said
“We are very happy to introduce our new Youth Diploma 2 course which is especially designed for coaches who have attended Youth Diploma 1”.

“In this new course, we are going to focus on developing a team style, what skills individually and in small groups do players need?, What do you teach them?, How do you teach them?, not only the skills and tactics, but also the mental and attitude aspects”.

“During this course I’m going to share with attendees, some of my personal experiences from working with some of the greatest clubs and federations in the world”. “A particular focus of the course is to show you how to develop individual players that are multi-positional, both attackers and defenders, with all practices and games being adaptable to players of all ages and abilities”.

“We are really looking forward to delivering this new course and believe that our approach to developing a team style will be of great benefit to those that will be in attendance at Fulham FC in June”.

Coerver® Coaching West Midlands Performance Academy Player Sam Khan has received an award on behalf of Chelsea Football Club prior to the clubs title winning game against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge last month.

Sam (Pictured above, alongside the 2015 winners) has previously taken part in “Chelsea’s Asian Star”, an initiative aimed at addressing the lack of Asians in the English game, which invites 400 children to the club’s state-of-the-art training facility in Surrey on an annual basis to put them through their paces. Sam came second during his first attempt in 2009 and followed that up by winning the competition in his age category in 2011.

Sam’s mother Ruth explained her pride at Sam’s recognition “Chelsea FC were notified that they were to be presented before kick off against Crystal Palace in May, with an award for their continuing campaign and the recognition its received. Sam, having been an active participant and supporter of this campaign for the past 5 years, was asked if he would receive the award on behalf of Chelsea FC with the owner Roman Abramovich. What an absolute honour for Sam to be asked to do this. His Dad and I are overwhelmed by what he has achieved to date. Of all the people they could have asked, and they asked our Little SK.”

Sam spoke of the competition “I still have great memories of Asian Star, it gave me so much confidence knowing the coaches at Chelsea were impressed with me. The event is so well organised and every player has the chance to impress. My advice would be to give it everything you have but make sure you enjoy the day as that is when you play your best and it can give you a great opportunity in football.”

Sam was in attendance again this year to present trophies to the 2015 winners, which included another Coerver® Coaching West Midlands Performance Academy player Adam Ahmed who won the U9 category.

West Midlands Performance Academy Manager, Luke Cheyne, said of the honour “All at Coerver Coaching UK would like to congratulate Sam on this recognition. Sam works extremely hard within our Performance Academy programme, alongside playing for Nottingham Forest. He continues to develop technically on the pitch as well as mature off it. We are confident that should he keep up this level of dedication to his own development, he is destined for a very bright future. Well done Sam!”

Luke added “We have a number of players within our Performance Academy who currently play for professional clubs, and a number who have signed for professional clubs since being a part of the Coerver programme. We feel that the Performance Academy offers the perfect environment for young players to learn what it takes to make the step up into academy football”.
