Center Of Excellence


The “Center of Excellence” is an 18 Week soccer program for players U8-U12. This training focuses on helping players develop an overall understanding of the game.

Technical: 1st touch, ball mastery, dribbling, cuts and turns (inside/outside cut, conti, cruyff, slapcut, etc.), 1v1 moves (scissors, stanley matthews, maradona, stepover, etc.)

Tactical: vision, decision making, small group situations (1v1,2v1,2v2,3v2) on offense and defense and transition.

90 Minute Training Sessions
The Coerver Minnesota curriculum is designed to develop players to possess:

            > A Dynamic First Touch: The skill and vision to place the ball with the first touch with either foot to a spot where it can be played again quickly and productively.  This is trained in every session and is a focus of the preparation that players are asked to do between sessions.

            > Accuracy and PowerThe ability to use several surfaces of both feet to control, pass, and shoot the ball.

            > Superior 1v1 Skills: The ability and confidence to take on and beat an opponent in a one-on-one situation, the poise to keep possession of the ball when under strong defensive pressure, and the skill when individually defending to shut down the crafty attacker. Using combinations of one-on-one activities in every session produces players of remarkable skill and confidence, when facing the individual duels that so often determine the outcome of a match.
   > 1v1 Moves: Scissors, Double Scissors, Step-Over, Maradona, Stanley Matthews, Dummy Scissors, Drag Step-Over and more.
   > Cuts and Turns: Inside Cut, Outside Cut, Cruyff, Step-Over, Conti, Slap-Stop, Pull-Tuck, Pull-Back, Pull-Push, Inside Spin-Off and more.

           > Mastery of the Small Group Situations: (2v1, 3v1, 3v2, etc.) these are the building blocks of team play.

           > Mastery Great Soccer Habits: The little things great players do that make a big difference on the field and form the basis for a player’s Sense of the Game (a.k.a. “game smarts”.)  

           > An Appreciation of the Competitive Process: Learning to give maximum effort at practice and games, to make yourself better and to challenge your teammates to be at their best every session.

By the age of 13, these players will be exceptionally skilled – poised, confident, creative, and BOLD with the ball as well as making excellent use of the fundamental elements of team play.
