The Coerver® UK HQ Coaching team headed down to Colchester, Essex last weekend to deliver the latest Play Like The Stars Roadshow at Tip Tree Jobserve FC to over 100 young players.

The Roadshow marked the launch event for the state-of-the-art facilities that have been opened at Warriors Rest in partnership between Tiptree Jobserve FC and Colchester United FC who will share the indoor artificial training dome for both grassroots and academy training sessions.

The players, both boys and girls, ranging from U8-U15 years old which included players from guest Club Stanway Villa FC started the roadshow in the classroom where they were taken through a presentation by Coerver® UK Director Scott Wright based on the day’s theme which was “Germany – World Cup Star Models”.

The presentation featured detailed video analysis on how Germany won the World Cup with two particular areas being focused on in the build-up to the practical session which was themed “Press & Protect”.

Players also had the opportunity to take part in a Skills Challenge and a World Cup tournament to round off the day’s activities in the dome. Following the practical session, players, coaches and parents headed back into the classroom for a review of the session and finally the awards for the Skills Challenge and Star Player winners were presented.

Coerver® UK Director Scott Wright said “The idea behind our Play Like The Stars Roadshow is that it is a learning experience for both the players and coaches both on and off the pitch. We base the themes on the World’s greatest players and teams and look to break down the elements of the game that they are good at”.

“For this particular Roadshow at Tip Tree Jobserve FC in Colchester, we focused on how Germany won the World Cup and used video analysis to help the players visualize what we would be doing before heading out for the practical session”.

“The facilities here at Warriors Rest are second to none and I can’t imagine that there is another grassroots club in the country that has access to such magnificent facilities. This in addition to the excellent organisation by the club and the tremendous effort that the players put in all added to a fantastic day for all”.

“I look forward to returning to the club next month to deliver a coach and parent education clinic which is also part of the Roadshow package and we hope to build a relationship here where we can really have a big impact on both player and coach development in the local area”.

Lee Verney, who organised the Roadshow on behalf of the club said “I would just once again like to thank Coerver UK for an excellent event on Saturday, I think it was fantastic and the feedback we have had since has been both positive and very encouraging”.

“Coerver UK once again excelled themselves at hosting an excellent, professional event attended by 100 players. All the players enjoyed themselves and I can vouch for the fact they learned something as we had a practice match with our under 13’s on Sunday and the pressing & protecting skills from both teams was vastly improved!”.
