Charlie George from the Coerver® Coaching West London Performance Academy based in Kingston, is the latest in a long line of players to benefit from the Coerver® Coaching Performance Academy programme in the UK and progress into the professional football academy system. Having spent over a year attending a variety of Coerver® Coaching training sessions, Charlie has joined one of the biggest clubs in the world, Chelsea Football Club.

Ian Dyer, Technical Director for Coerver® Coaching in West London said “The overall aim of our Performance Academy programme is to develop skilled, confident and creative players who, regardless of their ability level are able to enjoy training, improve their individual skills, and develop a better understanding of when and where these skills can be used effectively in games”.

Ian Dyer, says “The programme prides itself on providing the best possible environment for the players to learn and develop. The environment we aim to create is one where our players feel confident to try new things, continue to show a desire to improve, and perhaps most importantly, value their performance, character and work rate over winning”.

Dyer adds, “It is a unique programme as first of all, we focus on the technique of the individual player, and then develop them to be effective within the team game. We use Star Models such as Messi, Van Persie and Xavi during each session, to inspire players to be the best they can be!”.

Charlie joined the Performance Academy in Kingston in 2013, and has been attending weekly sessions as well as holiday courses, and training trips to places like St. Georges Park and Stoke City F.C. Charlie was selected from many young hopefuls by Chelsea following a trial period, participating in training and playing matches against many of the country’s top teams, he even traveled to Paris to take on PSG.

Ian Dyer said of Charlie. “Charlie is a great example of a player who has worked extremely hard and really improved his technical skills to be able to compete at professional academy level. To make the step up, from playing grassroots football to joining one of the country’s top academies, is an amazing achievement by Charlie”.

“He has benefited immensely from the Performance Academy environment. His attitude, work rate and commitment to the programme have been excellent throughout, and this is reflected in his development. Our training programme has not only given Charlie a solid technical foundation to build on, but also the understanding of transferring his skills into game situations, which is the basis of the modern day Coerver Coaching programme”.

Everyone at Coerver® Coaching UK wishes Charlie all the best with his exciting new challenge at Chelsea F.C. I’m sure if he continues to apply himself, like he has with us, he will do very well.
