"We've never had an authorized Coerver® pathway for Coaches, and we've been around over 30 years, and we're in 28 countries" says co-founder Alfred Galustian whose appointment in June 2010 as the Premier League Specialist Skills Advisor, assigned to help develop the next generation of Elite football coaches in the UK, further endorses the reputation of the Method.

"The new course is designed for Coaches who work with young players from 8-16 years old. We designed the diploma asking the question how can we help coaches construct effective sessions without the anxiety, head scratching and time wasting that often accompanies session planning."

"In our new Coerver® 5 Part DVD set and E Book, Charlie Cooke and myself have devised the Coerver® Coaching Session Planner. This is a template and formula that any coach can use to easily create their week, month or season's Sessions and we have constructed the whole course around this new material."
