Coerver Coaching

On Wednesday 28th February 2018, Coerver® EW Director Scott Wright & Head of Coaching, Luke Cheyne, travelled to London to deliver a “Train Like A PRO” day with adidas® UK Tango League Champions, The K5’s.

Hosted by adidas® partner club, Fulham FC, the 9-strong squad were given the opportunity to experience a day in the life of a professional footballer.

In the morning, the group were given exclusive behind the scenes access to Craven Cottage – the home of Fulham FC since 1896 and one of the last remaining ‘traditional’ grounds in the country.

After a short transfer, the Coerver® team and The K5′s headed to Fulham FC’s Motspur Park training ground where they observed a full, first team training session as the Cottagers prepare for their crucial Championship clash with promotion rivals, Derby County tomorrow.

Following the session, First Team Coach Stuart Gray and Norwegian international midfielder, Stefan Johansen, took time out for a Q&A with the squad.

In the afternoon, Coerver® EW delivered both theory and practical sessions for the group. This began in the classroom with a workshop based on the mental and physical aspects of the game. The day finished with a Coerver® practical session in the Fulham FC academy dome.

“Together with our partner adidas and Fulham FC, the K5’s tango league squad have had an amazing opportunity to learn what it takes to train like a pro” said Scott.

“Our aim was for these young players to come away from the day inspired but also with an understanding that it’s the small details that can often be the difference between success and failure.”

“Making it in the modern game takes more than just football ability. Grit, determination, physical conditioning, nutrition, rest, making good life choices etc are all vital areas which we aimed to cover today.”

“It was great to hear our messages being reinforced by Stuart and Stefan. The lads were a pleasure to work with and we hope that they take all of this valuable information and knowledge that has been shared with them today and put it to good use within their own environment.”

“Finally, we would like to express our thanks to Fulham FC for opening their doors and making us all feel so welcome, it was a fantastic day for all concerned.”

Our behind the scenes video & media will be released next week across all @CoerverEW social media platforms.

On Thursday 10th May 2018, the Coerver® Coaching England & Wales Coaches PRO Tour heads to our global youth development partners, SL Benfica.

Coaches from the Coerver® EW network travel to Lisbon to visit one of the game’s most famous clubs with a fantastic tradition for developing young players through their world-renowned academy.

As part of the tour, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a number of activities. These include a full behind the scenes tour of the world-class training facilities at the Caixa Futebol Campus (home to all SL Benfica teams), observation of SL Benfica academy training session/match and a full tour of Estádio da Luz Stadium & museum – the home of SL Benfica.

During the tour, SL Benfica will provide full access to their academy staff with a philosophy presentation and various coach interaction/workshops scheduled for the trip.

Coerver® England & Wales Director, Scott Wright said “We are very excited to take our Coaches PRO Tour to our global youth development partner, SL Benfica, for the very first time following our last tour to Real Madrid CF.”

“SL Benfica have one of the very best academies in world football and this is a wonderful opportunity for our attendees to experience the inner workings at the Caixa Futebol Campus first hand.”

“We are looking forward to what promises to be an exceptional trip to Portugal and I’m sure all in attendance will be both hugely motivated and inspired by the opportunity which we are really pleased to be able to provide exclusively for our network members.”

February 2018 saw 130 Coerver® EW Performance Academy, Partner Club and staff members travel to the Spanish capital city of Madrid for the 2018 Coerver® PRO Tour.

Held across 4 days, the PRO Tour provided attendees with an incredible behind the scenes insight into two global football super powers – Real Madrid CF and The Royal Spanish Football federation.

After landing on Friday evening and a full player / parent meeting ahead of the weekend’s events, PRO Tour Saturday was split into two main segments.

Saturday morning saw the PRO Tour head north from our hotel base in Alcobendas to La Ciudad del Fútbol de Las Rozas – the headquarters for all Spanish national teams. Here, our players participated in a 90-minute training session with Spanish FA coaches.

Following the session, the PRO Tour group had the opportunity to visit the Spanish national football museum which is also situated on site. Here, attendees could absorb the rich Spanish footballing heritage – from classic football kits to medals and success including seeing the 2008 & 2012 European Championship and 2010 World Cup winning trophies.

After a quick return to base for lunch, the PRO Tour made the short journey into Central Madrid and to the Santiago Bernabeau to watch Real Madrid CF play in their La Liga fixture against Real Sociedad. Here, attendees were treated to a master-class from the Galactico’s who put in a comprehensive 5-2 winning performance.

Sunday morning saw the PRO Tour return to the Bernabeau for the full Real Madrid stadium tour which included visiting the home team changing room – the very same changing room where Zidane’s winning side had celebrated their victory in only hours earlier!

Monday was the last day of the trip but the one everyone had been waiting for. Following a short 10-mimute drive from the team base, the PRO Tour arrived at Ciudad Real Madrid in Valdedebas – Real Madrid CF’s purpose built training complex.

Here, the PRO Tour players participated in two 90-minute training sessions that were delivered by Real Madrid CF full-time academy staff.

“The 2018 Coerer® PRO Tour has been the best tour that we have delivered to date” said Coerver® EW Director, Scott Wright.

“The PRO Tour is a unique and special event – it is a trip that provides a level of accessibility that cannot be obtained easily to most. To have two massive football organisations with deeply rooted football heritage and global success open their doors to our players, parents and staff further highlights the fantastic benefits to being a member of our network.”

“We could not have asked for this year’s trip to have gone any better – the Tour attendees representing Coerver® England & Wales were first class both on and off the pitch, and the coaching staff at the Spanish FA and Real Madrid CF were top class.”

“This year’s PRO Tour will take some beating, but we already have plans in place and are up to the challenge of making the 2019 Coerver® PRO Tour better than ever!”

Sharon Robinson’s daughter, Monique, is part of the Coerver® Performance Academy in Derby. “It’s been faultless’” said Sharon. “I have to say; I have been pleasantly surprised at how efficiently this trip has been executed.”

“There has not been one stand out part of the trip, it has all been really, really good. Coming to some of these facilities – they are world class and if that doesn’t inspire your child any more than they are already are [to be successful in football], then you are missing a trick by not coming on a Coerver® PRO Tour.”

“It’s just amazing and I think that every kid that is given the opportunity to do it then they should take it” [attend a Coerver® PRO Tour].

Darren Wilson (Sam Wilson, Coerver® Performance Academy Coventry) said “Sam loves football – he dreams football. So, when the opportunity came up, I didn’t have to think twice about brining Sam here to Real Madrid”

“Taking Sam through the [player’s] tunnel at Real Madrid and seeing his face light up as we entered the stadium is something I’ll never forget. But also, Sam training here [Ciudad Real Madrid] is fantastic. I mean, how many 9 year olds get that opportunity?!”

The Coerver® PRO Tour is an annual event accessible to members of the Coerver® England & Wales network.
