Coerver EW Director presents at Spanish International Coaching Congress

Coerver® England & Wales Director, Scott Wright, recently returned from the Spanish capital where he was invited to present at the Madrid International Football Congress which was hosted in the city at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos between Friday 30th June – Sunday 2nd July 2017.

The congress was organized in partnership between the RFEF (Royal Spanish Football Federation) and Emtrenar Football Institute, with coaches from all levels of the game traveling from across Spain and South America to attend the three-day event.

Guest presenters were handpicked by RFEF master coaching director Daniel Guidos, who also works within the academy at Real Madrid CF, with the objective of providing Congress attendees with a global view of the latest football coaching methods.

In addition to Scott, guest presenters who work and have worked at some of the world’s leading clubs and national federations including the RFEF, Juventus, River Plate, Ajax and FC Porto delivered alongside experts working at the highest level in Futsal and a number of Olympic sports.

“I am extremely honored to have been invited to present at such a prestigious event and thank Daniel Guidos from the RFEF for inviting me and for also bringing together people with many differing views on the game which lead to some very interesting discussions” said Scott.

“My presentations were well received, the first one was based on the 33-year evolution of Coerver Coaching and the second based on the importance of ball mastery and 1 v 1 skills teaching”.

“I had a number of coaches from the national federation and La Liga clubs discussing with me afterward that they felt Coerver could play a very important part in the evolution of both coach and player development in Spain and subsequently there has been a number of follow up emails so watch this space!”.

“Having worked regularly in Spain since 2012, it’s a place I always enjoy visiting. Continuing the work I have been doing with the Real Madrid CF university over the last four years and now with the RFEF/Emtrenar Football Institute is something I am really looking forward to as we head into the new season”.

Coerver Youth Diploma 2 Course Booking Launch

Coerver® Coaching England & Wales are pleased to announce that on-line booking is now open for our Youth Diploma 2 course which will take place at the Watford FC Academy in London on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th October 2017.

This follows the last Coerver® Youth Diploma 2 course delivered in England & Wales which was also hosted in London, during May 2016, at Millwall FC. The course will be delivered by Coerver® Coaching co-founder Alf Galustian, who will be assisted by Coerver® England & Wales Director Scott Wright.

The Youth Diploma 2 course expands on the knowledge obtained during the Youth Diploma 1 and is based on how to develop a team style through individual and small group skills, both in and out of possession.

“We are really looking forward to delivering this Youth Diploma 2 course at Watford FC academy in October and welcoming coaches from across the world who have previously attended our Youth Diploma 1 course in the many countries we are operational in” said Coerver® England & Wales Director, Scott Wright. “The location of the Watford FC academy is perfect for coaches that will be flying in due to the close proximity to Heathrow airport. This was an important factor in our planning of facilitating the course at this location – a factor which will make it as easy as possible for attendees to travel to and from.”

“At the time of writing, there are only two Youth Diploma 2 courses scheduled for the whole of the 2017-18 season in Europe, so we expect demand to attend this course will be at an all-time high. With this in mind, we offered coaches that had attended the Youth Diploma 1 course in England and Wales a 72-hour priority booking window which expired today at midday which has seen approximately 75% of all available places being booked and the course is now on general release.”
“The concept of our Youth Diploma 2 course is to expand on the knowledge gained in our Coerver® Intro and Youth Diploma 1 courses and focuses on the development of a team style. This isn’t in a tactical or formation sense but a technical and mindset sense with the proviso that you can only play a certain way within the team structure if you have players that possess certain individual and small group skills as well as a particular mindset.”

“This course will also provide the rare opportunity to learn directly from Coerver® co-founder Alf Galustian who will be sharing his thirty three plus years of applied knowledge and experience working at all levels of the game with course attendees, so this is sure to be a weekend which will be hugely valuable for all.”

Coerver EW Director invited to present at Spanish FA International Football Congress

This weekend will see Coerver® EW director Scott Wright travel back to Madrid to present at the RFEF (Royal Spanish Football Federation) / Emtrenar football Institute, International football Congress hosted by Rey Juan Carlos University from Friday 30th June – Sunday 2nd July 2017.

Having worked at the Real Madrid university in March 2017 for the fourth year running, Scott will join guest presenters who work and have worked at some of the world’s leading clubs and national federations including the RFEF, Juventus, River Plate, Ajax and FC Porto.

Further presenters working at the highest level in Futsal and Olympic sports will present to delegates during the annual three-day congress which will bring together professional coaches from across Spain.

“It’s obviously a massive honour to have been invited to present at such a prestigious event” said Scott. “The RFEF are without a doubt one of the truly elite national federations in world football and have a development model in place, both for players and coaches, which has brought huge success for the nation on the international stage from junior to senior level.”

“Only last night their U21’s have reached yet another major final which is such an important part of the development process if the players are to make the next step up to success in senior international football.”

“Having worked in Spain regularly since 2012, one of the things I know is that as a nation they are always looking at ways to improve and they take coach education and development very seriously. Also having worked on the Real Madrid CF university MSc course in talent ID and football development for the last four years, I’ve learned a lot about the development process not only at Real Madrid but also as a nation.”

“I would like to thank RFEF MSc coaching course director, Daniel Guidos, who also works at Real Madrid CF, for the invitation to present. It’s great that someone of his standing, knowledge, and experience in Spanish coaching and player development values the contribution we can provide.”

“The organisations and individuals I have worked with here really see the benefits that the Coerver programme can add to the development model that currently exists in Spain and I’m really looking forward to working with the delegates of the Congress in Madrid this weekend.”

Updates from the weekend will be shared across @coerverEW social media channels during the weekend.

On Saturday 10th June 2017, 70 coaches headed to Uxbridge, London for the first

Held at The Harefield Academy, which is also the base of Premier League club, Watford FC’s academy, the course was delivered by Coerver® England & Wales Director Scott Wright.

“We are thrilled to see in excess of 70 coaches from every level of the game turn out for this weekend’s course” said Scott. “The first Coerver® Youth Diploma course in England and Wales was delivered in 2011 at Birmingham City FC – it is truly refreshing to see there are still so many coaches who are open to learning new concepts and ideas in order to further their own knowledge base.”

“Since last year’s Youth Diploma 1 courses, we have put a lot of energy into evolving and enhancing the course support material. This includes a newly designed course handbook in addition to the development of our new Coerver® Coach Education Pathway website which provides attendees with video driven content to support learning after the course.”

“We have come away from the weekend with the feeling that this has been one of the strongest Coach Education courses that we have delivered to date and we have received fantastic feedback from the attendees. We are hugely looking forward to our Manchester course next month on the weekend of

Luke Cheyne is the Head of Coaching & Football Operation for Coerver® England & Wales and has been instrumental in forging the partnership. “We are delighted to welcome St Albans City Youth FC into the Coerver® Partner Club programme for the 2017-18 season.”

“Even as we enter the closing stages of what has been a hugely successful inaugural Partner Club season, the process of evolving and enhancing the programme is a continual body of work. St Albans City Youth FC is a club that we identified as having the correct mind-set towards the development of young footballers as well as having the club structure that we believe will make integrating the Coerver® Coaching method a seamless transition.”

“We look forward to having a continued impact in football development of young players across the country and are excited to venture into the Hertfordshire area with St Albans City Youth FC.”

Sam Mardle oversees all coach and community operations at St Albans City Youth FC. “St Albans City Youth FC are delighted and privileged to announce that we have teamed up with the world leaders in their field.

Coerver® Partner Club PRO Tour to Real Madrid CF a huge success!

Coerver® Coaching England & Wales have returned from Madrid once again, this time following a superb PRO Tour to the Spanish capital with 130 members of our Partner Club networks.

Players, parents and coaches representing Coerver® Partner Clubs Robin Hood JFC from Leeds, Littleover Dazzlers from Derby, Rugby Town JFC from Warwickshire, Spartak Saffron Walden & PSG Girls from Essex all travelled to Real Madrid C.F to experience what goes on behind the scenes at the largest club in global football.
The concept behind the PRO Tour is to provide young players and their families with the opportunity to experience football in another country – both and off the pitch. On the pitch, young players are given the chance to experience a different approach to learning the game from coaches in another country. It is also a chance to gain knowledge that they may not experience in their normal football environment. Off the pitch, it gives the scope to explore a vibrant new part of the world and find out what football means to a completely new culture.

Attendees were a part of a 3-day trip that was strategically planned to provide an experience that reinforced both the football and cultural PRO Tour goals. Part one saw players and their families travel from the team hotel in Alcobendas to the Coerver® Coaching Spain Futsal academy in the centre of Madrid.

The centre hosts weekly Coerver® Futsal sessions led by current Spain national team captain Carlos Ortiz and current World Futsal player of the year, Ricardinho. During the 3-hour visit, players took part in a multi-faceted futsal training session which taught the key fundamental skills to be successful when playing in a futsal environment.
The second part of the tour provided attendees time to get into the great city of Madrid and embrace the football culture of the Madridistas. PRO Tour attendees were at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu for the Saturday evening La Liga game between Real Madrid CF and Valencia CF. We were able to see the biggest names in global football up close and personal in a game that saw the hosts winning 2-1  thanks to a late Marcelo goal.

The following morning, attendees revisited the scenes of the previous day’s triumph, embarking on a full tour of Real Madrid’s stadium. The tour is a hybrid of state-of-the art interactive technology which displays Real Madrid’s rich footballing history and the ability to access operational areas of the stadium that is used by the club.

The final segment of the tour provided the most inspiring moments of the tour – an access all areas visit to Ciudad Real Madrid, the Real Madrid CF training and academy campus in Valdebebas. Here, players and their families were given a guided tour of the Real Madrid training facility before heading out onto the academy pitches to participate in 2 x 1.5 hour training sessions with coaching staff from Real Madrid’s academy – a fitting way to end the PRO Tour.

“The concept of the PRO Tour is to provide our Partner Club players with the opportunity to experience elite level training environments and to experience the culture in a different country” said Coerver® Coaching England & Wales Head of Coaching & Football Operations, Luke Cheyne.

“Due to our network of partners all over the world and our long-standing global partnership with adidas®, we are able to offer our members with opportunities that would otherwise seem impossible. Following on from a hugely successful first season of the Partner Club programme, we were delighted to take a selection of players, parents and coaches over to Madrid to experience life within one of the world’s biggest clubs.”

“This is the third time we have returned to Real Madrid CF with our members in the past 2 years, having previously being here for our 2015-16 PRO Tour in addition to our recent Performance Academy PRO Tour in February 2017. We are delighted and fortunate to have forged a strong relationship with a club of Real’s stature – the hard work that has gone into this relationship has allowed us to bring our players on this amazing trip.”

“The PRO Tour is a phenomenal experience – not only just for the players but for those family members accompanying them as well. Aside from the football, the PRO Tour offers the opportunity for our families to explore, experience a new culture and discover a new city together.”

“Coming to a place such as Madrid can only be inspirational for a young player. Having the opportunity to train on the same pitches as Real Madrid academy players, to see first team players live in a competitive game, these are all amazing life experiences that we hope will ignite the passion for the game of football in our players and will drive them to achieve the highest level of football possible when they return to the UK.”

“The PRO tour is an added benefit of our Partner Club programme, which already supports the club in a number of areas including session planning, coach education and player and parent education, via the provision of both real-life technical coaching and online support. These clubs join the likes of Rangers FC and Portuguese giants Benfica in their collaboration with Coerver® Coaching.”

Coerver EW Director invited back to lecture at the Real Madrid University

Last weekend saw Coerver® England & Wales Director, Scott Wright, travel back to the Spanish capital city of Madrid to lecture on the Real Madrid University MSc in Talent Identification and Development in Soccer Course at the Villaviciosa de Odon campus.

Having first received an invitation to lecture on the course in 2014, this occasion has made it four years in a row that Scott has delivered to students on the course – a course that is jointly ran by the European University of Madrid (Universidad Europea) and the World’s biggest football club, Real Madrid CF.

Two theory and two practical based Coerver® coach education sessions were delivered to this year’s intake of MSc students who were selected from around the world to attend the prestigious course.
“It was a great honour to be invited back for the fourth year in a row to lecture to this year’s Real Madrid university MSc students – students who have re-located to the Spanish capital for the year long course from across Spain and beyond” said Scott. “The course itself has a number of unique elements, firstly the applied knowledge of the faculty of staff really is on a different level to any course such as this that I am aware of.”

“Presenters are brought in from across the professional game who are currently working with some of the world’s leading clubs and national teams. For example, on the Friday before I delivered, the head of Sevilla FC’s academy worked with the students. This course provides them with a truly global view of current football trends and methods, not just in the classroom but equally out on the pitch.”

“When you combine this with the knowledge and experience of the course students, with a number already working within the professional game and blend that with the knowledge and experience of the biggest sports club in the world, this truly is a benchmark Master’s degree in the field of Football and creates an incredible learning environment for all.”

“The global football network that is associated to the course enables the students to work with, visit and collaborate with the worlds’ leading football clubs and organisations and it’s great for ourselves at Coerver® Coaching to be classed within that bracket by the directors of the MSc course here at the Real Madrid university.”

“As an example, three of the students from last years in-take are now working full-time within the Real Madrid academy so the pathway is most certainly in place for students to progress into roles directly from the course.”

“Once again, we have received fantastic feedback from the students and course directors who feel that the Coerver® methodology adds real value and supplements the existing modules of work and current knowledge base that they have.”

“We look forward to continuing our relationship here with the Real Madrid university and returning to Spain during the new academic year which will be our fifth consecutively – to date we are the only lecturers to have been invited to the course from the UK which of course is a huge honour for us.”

Coerver EW get behind the scenes with England Rugby

England continued their preparations for Saturday’s potentially record-breaking Six Nations clash with Ireland, under the watchful eye of a study group from Coerver® Coaching at the team’s training HQ at Pennyhill Park in Surrey.

Coerver® England and Wales Director, Scott Wright and Head of Coaching Luke Cheyne joined Coerver® Coaching Co-Founder Alf Galustian, CEO Jimmy Galustian and Newcastle United Academy Director, Joe Joyce to watch England’s preparation ahead of the game in Dublin.

Having already secured the Six Nations title with a 61-21 victory over Scotland at Twickenham last weekend, England are on the verge of over-taking the All Blacks’ record successive first class international victories, with a win against Ireland on Saturday seeing Eddie Jones’ squad of talented and determined players take their tally to 19, 18 of which have come under Jones’ tenure. A positive result on Saturday would also see England secure their second consecutive Grand Slam, their first since 1991/92 season.

Following the intense training session, head coach Eddie Jones took time out of his busy schedule for a discussion with the group as he prepares his side for the opportunity that lies ahead at the Aviva Stadium, sharing an insight into how he has instilled such success into the England camp.

Coerver® England & Wales Director Scott Wright (pictured above with James Haskell and Courtney Lawes) said “It was a phenomenal experience to see the preparation ahead of such an important and historic match. The attention to detail and the way in which the session was structured was something I’ve never seen before in football.”

“The intensity of the session was incredible when you consider it is only a couple of days before such a big match. Then to sit down with Eddie Jones, who is a huge admirer of the Coerver Coaching programme, to discuss the details around the session and coaching in general was the icing on the cake of what was an unbelievable experience. We were made to feel really welcome, and the openness of all of the staff showed real class.”

“It’s no surprise that England rugby is seeing so much success on the pitch at the moment. To see such fantastic leadership from both players and staff, precise planning with each element of the session meticulously executed at such a high intensity throughout, really was something special and I’m looking forward to seeing the game plan come off on Saturday.”


Coerver® England & Wales Head of Coaching Luke Cheyne added: “From a professional perspective, to be up so close and personal with the squad and staff ahead of a game of such magnitude on Saturday and in the middle of a hugely successful period in the history of English rugby, is an experience that I will never forget. We gained a great insight into the environment that has bred so much success recently. We have been lucky enough in recent years to visit and work within a number of professional environments, including FC Bayern Munich and Real Madrid within the last 12 months, so to add this visit is really special.”

“Pennyhill Park has seen a number of well documented visits during this Six Nations campaign, with England Manager Gareth Southgate, Chelsea’s Antonio Conte and former England cricket captain Alastair Cook all sharing ideas, and it’s great for us to join that sort of company. With a long and illustrious history over he past 33 years, we at Coerver Coaching are constantly looking to learn and bring new ideas that can help to continually evolve and develop our programmes all over the world.”

“From a personal point of view, as a rugby player myself and a huge England rugby supporter, this was certainly up there with one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. To watch the boys training, with an intensity to everything they do, underpinned by a phenomenal work rate and willingness to improve each and every day. I’m really excited for the game in Dublin this weekend and I’m confident we’ll see us win another Grand Slam. We look forward to further visits to Pennyhill in the future, and we thank Eddie and his staff for such fantastic hospitality.”
