The 5 Soccer Essentials
In the last couple of years Coerver Coaching co-founder Alfred
Galustian and I wanted an image that would represent visually our
Coerver Coaching Mission i.e. our aim to develop skilled,
confident and creative players. And to help our students to be
the best they can be on and off the field, something that means
more than simply playing good soccer.
With that in mind we came up with the Coerver Code that was/is
our way of communicating visually (and immediately at least for
us) what Coerver Coaching is all about i.e. whole person
They are the 5 S's, that we aspire to develop in every Coerver
training session. They are outlined in the image below.
The 5 "S" Soccer "Essentials" and The Life Skills they can effect:
SKILLS: Confidence, Creativity
SPEED: Competition, Focus
SENSE: Study, Decision making, Responsibility
STAMINA: Discipline, Well being, Work Ethic
SPIRIT: Communication, Respect, Sportsmanship,
Commitment and Courage.
At the core of the Coerver Code is “COMPETITION”. We believe
it is "Competition" that hones players skills and personality;
produces effective game players; and brings about 'Whole Person
Development' that results in Respect for team mates, Opponents
and Officials; and the game itself.
I hope they strike the same emotional chords for you as they do
for Alfred and myself and our Coerver Coaches around the world.
