The Coerver Coaching System is highly regarded around the world as the #1 soccer training aid available on the market at the moment, and I thought I’d take a bit of an in depth look at what makes this program so successful.
And there’s a good reason why Jurgen Klinsmann endorses the DVDs – the DVDs are good, as they are based around the soccer ball and getting comfortable with the ball at your feet. Klinsmann said this about Coerver:
“I wish the Coerver Coaching program had been available when I was young – it would certainly have made me a better player.”
First of all, I’m going dissect this DVD set into it’s corresponding sections and then I’m going to post a summary of my personal opinions on this product.
A New Era in the Game
This section of the DVD introduces you to the Coerver Coaching techniques involved and has some great footage from real football matches to help inspire as well as entertain. Overall, it’s a great way to start off and effectively sets the tone for the rest of the DVD.

Summary Review of Coerver
To be honest, I was initially rather skeptical of this product. This was mainly due to the fact that I didn’t recognize any of the names associated with Coerver Soccer Coaching, and I’ll admit, I (naively) questioned their pedigree somewhat.
But within the first 20 minutes of watching this product, I was simply blown away by the sheer scale and depth of footballing knowledge that this product could boast. There are dozens upon dozens of well produced and easy to follow clips that effectively cover every aspect of the player’s ability on the ball and the offensive game.
I can’t help but sit here and wish that this kind of resource was available to me when growing up, it really has raised the bar for coaching and individual players alike.
