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”.
