Teams and Ages

Campers work in teams of 10-14 players of similar age and ability. The assignment begins by separating the campers by age into birth year age groups. There are 3 age group camps that are available:

Mighty Mites – Our Mighty Mite camps are half-day programs for boys/girls ages 5-7. They feature fun games, basic skills, and a positive introduction to the game. There are individual and team contests and a mini World Cup Competition.

Regular Camp Program – For boys and girls 8-16 yrs, new and returning players. Within the Regular Camp Program Coerver has 5 different curricula to adapt all player’s skill levels and past knowledge of the curriculum. Each level builds upon mastery of the previous curriculum fundamentals to continue to challenge and develop players’ skill sets.

Advanced Camp Program –  Minimum age is entering U15 for players who have not attended a Coerver Camp before. For boys and girls 13-18 yrs who are pursuing soccer careers at the High School and Collegiate level and beyond. This program is for players who have already developed the basic Coerver® skills and who use their “Moves” in games. This program teaches “Advanced Moves,” emphasizes pace, accuracy, and timing of passes and runs, and seeks to increase “speed of play.”

Uniforms

Wednesday of camp is “Jersey Day,” when all are encouraged to wear their favorite soccer jerseys from around the world. Get one ready!

Coaching Staff

The core of the staff are Nationally Licensed Coaches who coached in the Olympic Development Program during that era when Colorado players were being selected to Regional and National teams in large numbers. (While some coach teams at the Club level, our program is strict “club neutral”. It will not be a venue for scouting or player recruitment, either by coaches or parents. Its focus will be fully on developing the talents of already talented players.) As the program has grown, we have brought in coaches from many clubs. We also use, as assistants and “Big Brother / Big Sister” role models, high school players who have grown up with Coerver®.

We hope that this program and our staff will be able to benefit far more players than those who are actually enrolled. Selected COE sessions for each age group are designed as “Bring Your Coach” sessions where coaches of COE participants can see what the players are learning, and take the Coerver® ideas and activities back to their teams and clubs. Coerver® has become the standard by which soccer skill development is measured in Colorado.

Common Questions

What is the focus of the camp?

At Coerver, we deliver Purposeful and Deliberate practice. Players are challenged to train outside their comfort zone in a focused manner,  with clear goals, a detailed curriculum to accomplish goals, stats to monitor progress, and a relentless positive coaching staff to provide feedback. This practice approach creates a risk to the learning culture, elevates self-motivation, and creates dynamic competition within a group. Making it easy for a coach to Praise the Process. 

Coerver® Coaching is a complete soccer education program. Our camps and programs are designed to concentrate on individual skills. We group the players first by age, then by ability. We try to make each player feel comfortable with his/her surroundings. We have found that if a camper is comfortable, then he/she is better willing and able to deal with the camp material.

What is included in the camp?

Coerver® Colorado provides the finest in-depth soccer skills training. Building on the world-renowned Coerver Method, our camps and other programs represent the cutting edge of player training and development. Coerver Colorado programs are devoted to promoting superior 1v1 skills, a dynamic first touch, accuracy, and power when striking the ball, mastery of the small group situations which are the building blocks of team play, and effective soccer habits. All Coerver Colorado programs follow a detailed, written curriculum, filled with activities that are proven to be challenging, effective, and enormously fun.

What is the camp like?

What sets the Coerver® Method apart from all other programs is that our Method uses “match-related” drills to develop “quick feet” and a “soft first touch” as the foundation of our “moves” to beat an opponent or to create time and space. These skills appear simple, but each skill requires a high degree of “Ball Mastery.” Our intent is to challenge every player to improve their skills to the extent of their own ability.

Ball Mastery: 1 player 1 ball. Repetition ball control exercises with both feet.
Receiving/Passing: Exercises and games to improve 1st touch, so important at all levels, and to encourage accurate and creative passing.
Moves 1v1: Exercises and games that teach game winning individual moves and create space against packed defenses.
Speed: Exercises and games to improve agility, acceleration and power with and without the ball.
Finishing: Exercises and games that improve technique and encourage instinctive play around the goal.
Group Attack: Exercises and games that improve small group play with an emphasis on Fast Break Attacks.

What is the mission of the camp?

“Teach skills and they will play a lifetime”

Coerver® Colorado provides the finest in-depth soccer skills training.

What is the camp breakdown?

We are able to group Campers into Teams with others of similar ability and experience. Please keep in mind that this is a skills camp, and a player who is much stronger or weaker than the others on a Team will not get the most out of the camp in that setting. Nor will the others in a Team with players of widely differing abilities.

The assignment begins by separating the campers by age into birth year age groups. Within their birth year, players will be filtered by returning players and new players. The returning players will be sorted by their past benchmark skills tests, Coach’s recommendations, and Coerver True Scores to be placed among peers with the closest set of benchmarks reached. A new player will be sorted with their proper birth age as well as any coach recommendation received.

Who are the coaches?

The core of the staff are Nationally Licensed Coaches who coached in the Olympic Development Program during that era when Colorado players were being selected to Regional and National teams in large numbers.
