Ball Mastery Camp Level are for campers aged between 6 and 10. Emphasis is placed on individual skill development and basic moves with the goal of developing confidence on the ball. Beginning “move sets” are taught and games are played to practice the moves 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 and by the end of the first morning, players are performing moves under full defensive pressure to goal. First touch is a major theme in Ball Mastery sessions. Advanced Camp level are campers aged between 10 and 14. The Advanced level teaches more complicated moves and swiftly puts players into competitive environments with an emphasis on 1v1 and 2v2 play in the morning. Small group tactics are also taught and small-sided games are played featuring fast break attack and counter attack. The importance of fast transition play is stressed and players are encouraged to play creatively and freely and to use their new skills in games. Players are also put in many situations requiring decision-making as that is a key ingredient to advanced play. A new addition to the Coerver Camp offerings is COERVER GK. This course is based on the Pyramid of Player Development of sound goalkeeping principles and techniques. The COERVER GK camp session is structured around the existing field player camps. Keepers will have separate technical training before blending in with the other campers for 1v1s, dealing with crosses, shot stopping, and positional play during live action drills. A great way for the GK to attend the same camp as his/her teammates while still getting the individual technical & positional training he/she needs. The new Coerver GK program offers the perfect opportunity for GK’s to be pushed to achieve the next level.
