What’s the Coerver Coaching pyramid of soccer player development? It’s sort of a foundation for soccer players and teams to follow. The pyramid consists of 6 building blocks outlined below for all soccer players and teams to use as a guide. With Coerver, which is why it’s such a great soccer program for young players, is the foundation is ball mastery. In order to play good soccer and play at a high level you have to develop skills on the ball:
BALL MASTERY – Exercises where each player works alone with a ball at repetitions using both feet.
RECEIVING & PASSING – Exercises to improve a player’s first touch, so important at all levels, and to encourage and teach accurate and creative passing.
MOVES (1 V 1) – Exercises and games that teach game – winning individual moves that can create space against the most packed of defenses.
SPEED – Exercises and games that improve acceleration, running with and without the ball and change of pace.
FINISHING – Exercises and games that teach technique and encourage instinctive play.
GROUP ATTACK – Exercises and games that improve small – group combination play with emphasis on fast break attack.
