Coerver® Coaching System of Player Development

When Coerver® Coaching launched its new 3 part DVD series and book entitled "A new Era" it did more than just extend its product range. These new products contained the blueprint for Coerver Coaching going into the new Millennium.

The new curriculum represented by the Pyramid of Player Development, as shown above, consisted of 6 building blocks.

Each block has dozens of games and training exercises for all ages and experience levels.  The exercises and games can be used by coaches who are planning training sessions as well as players practicing on their own.

Ball mastery is the foundation of every player's development and becomes essential to progress through the pyramid.  But don't think of this as a ladder, where one level must be completed before continuing to the next level.  Instead each step is integral to the others and the player improvement is achieved as their techniques improve at each level.
