Coaches from across the country descended on Birmingham City FC’s Wasthills training ground at the weekend to take part in the pilot Coerver® Play Like The Stars 1 v 1 Coach Education course. This new course focuses specifically on the topic of 1 v 1 and provides attendees with the latest Coerver® content in this most vital area of the game.

Coaches from both grassroots and professional levels of the game were tutored by Coerver® UK director Scott Wright who delivered the full day course through a series of theory and practical sessions aimed at providing attendees with knowledge into how to teach 1 v 1 skills from mastery to game effective use.

Scott said of the pilot course in Birmingham “It was great to deliver the pilot course at Birmingham City FC on Saturday and fantastic to see coaches from all levels of the game in attendance”.

“Anyone that has been through a national or UEFA licensed course will know that the topic of 1 v 1
gets little to no coverage and we have a thirty plus year history of focusing on and teaching this topic. We feel that our new Play Like The Stars course goes some way to filling the knowledge gap left from the licensed courses in this most vital area of the game and it is knowledge that every coach of young players needs to have no matter the level that they work at”.

“1 v 1 always seems to be a topic that we work on with professional clubs, at their request, only last week we delivered CPD at Werder Bremen in Germany on this topic and in recent months we have also delivered national federation CPD for the Czech FA & Northern Ireland FA B licence, A Licence & Pro Licence courses so it shows that there is a real demand for this knowledge not only in the UK but also abroad”.

“We have three more courses in England, all at professional club venues, coming up in November and we are looking forward to travelling up and down the country to deliver this course and are looking forward to working with many coaches from all levels of the game”.

Grassroots Coach Pat Tomkins of Bustleholme Villans FC U9’s & Bustleholme Lions FC U11’s in Birmingham summed up the course:

“I feel that the Coerver Play like the stars 1 v 1 is an excellent course for coaches to attend and would be of interest to a coach of any age group but would be an invaluable tool for a coach in the “lower age groups” where they can really get the players to learn these essential skills. The course was delivered by Scott Wright who was an excellent tutor and was supported by the Coerver coaches who are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Overall I would score the course a ten out of ten and was the most useful course I have attended or been involved with and I look forward to attending future courses”.
