Coerver Soccer CampsUpdated Friday February 16, 2018 by Soccer Operations Office.
NEW! Summer 2018 at Herbst Sports Complex
Ball Mastery Camp (9am-3pm) (Dates: 7/9/18-7/13/18)
Ages 6-11 $315
($30 off until 3/15/18)
Ball Mastery camps are for players with less than 2 years of experience with Coerver Training. The focus of the Ball Mastery level is on individual skill development and our core move sets with the goal of developing self-confidence on the ball. Our core move sets are taught in a method that starts with no pressure and slowly adds the pressure of time and/or space restrictions. Then passive defensive pressure is added while working our way to full defensive pressure. This is done in a progressive training model where we are building our numbers within the game from 1v1 to 2v2 to 3v3. While, each camp day is focused on a technique or move set, first touch is consistently a major theme. By the end of each morning, players are performing the move set of the day under full defensive pressure to goal.
After lunch all Ball Mastery groups receive training in Ball striking/Shooting techniques. The final hour of camp is focused on small sided (4v4) games, with each day offering a new team to play with and a new tournament to win. Group champions are recognized at our award ceremony on Friday afternoon.

Advanced Camp (9am-3pm) (Dates: 7/9/18-7/13/18)
Ages 10-14 $365
($30 off until 3/15/18)
Advanced camps are for players with 2 or more years of Coerver experience or with a technical competence with our core more sets. Advance camp players should not only “know” the Coerver Move sets but should be able to perform them at game speed.
The Advanced level focuses not only on how the Coerver moves are executed, but also on the “where and when” they should be used in a game. These are the tactical decisions every player on the field must be able to make. The Advanced camps teach more complicated moves and swiftly puts players into competitive environments with an emphasis on 1v1 and 2v2 games. Players are put in many situations requiring decision-making as that is a key ingredient to advanced play. Small group tactics are taught in small-sided games featuring a fast break attacking style of play. The importance of quick transitional play is stressed. Players are encouraged to use their new skills in games, while being given the freedom to express themselves creativity.

Camp Curriculum and Focus
Our coaches are constantly being trained as our curriculum continues to develop and new games and exercises are introduced by Coerver Coaches from all over the world.
At all levels, games are played to encourage the use of the specific skills being taught that day. Over three decades of cooperative curriculum development affords us to finely tuned our methods for getting the skills incorporated into competitive environments as quickly as possible while building confidence along the way. The difficulty of the moves we teach, and the intensity of the competition increases at each camp level.
The 7-11 Ball Mastery Camp age group will focus on individual skill in all areas of the game with emphasis on Ball Mastery and the four core Coerver Move Sets. The goal of the Ball Mastery camp is to teach our players the “how” to execute our individual moves. Our goal is to develop skilled, confident, and creative players that have the ability to break down a defense alone if needed. When a level of competence has been established, small sided games which encourage the use of new skills are played.
The 10-14 Advanced Camp age group will focus on more complicated moves and the “when” and “where” to use those move set in game settings. Players are put in many situations which require decision making as that is a key ingredient to advanced play. Players are taught the difference between a good first touch and the right first touch with emphasis on receiving the ball skillfully but also tactically away from pressure and quickly into the attack.
