YOUNG players were part of the first FFT Performance Coerver Coaching Skills Clinics at the Sutherland Shire FA in NSW during the school holidays - and the clinics are back this month.
Running Sept 23-26 and open to players of all abilities from 7-15 years old the skills clinics follow the Coerver curriculum – recognised globally over the last 26 years as the best system for producing technically talented young players recognised as such by the likes of the French, Japanese and Chinese Football Federations as well as club sides like Bayern Munich, Newcastle United and Arsenal.
The players will all receive 12 hours of quality coaching from Coerver accredited coaches and will focus on developing all of the four core skills – striking the ball, first touch, 1v1 ability and running with the ball – plus improve their all-round ball mastery, the cornerstone of any talented players game.
Each player also gets a Coerver training shirt, an adidas training ball, a personalised front cover of FourFourTwo plus a copy of the magazine and an attendance certificate as well as some special prizes.
This is a unique partnership between the world’s number one football magazine and the world’s number one skills to deliver local young players a professional and enjoyable football experience at the headquarters of Australia’s biggest football association.
The first clinics in April received fantastic feedback from players and parents alike
“My son thoroughly enjoyed the FourFourTwo Coerver skills clinic. Apart from the clinic being great the added touches like the front cover made the boys feel like superstars and it was exciting for them to see themselves in the photos you put on the FourFourTwo web site it gave them a taste of what it would be like if they were real superstars. The clinic gave the boys a chance to learn even more new skills in their development in the game.”
