Hone your skills at the world game

March 22, 2024 BY

Demand for places in the weekly and holiday programs continues to grow.

Australia’s next generation of footballers have the chance to hone their skills at a series of fun, engaging and globally recognised holiday programs across Geelong and the Surf Coast region.

Led by former Socceroo and Olympian Adrian Leijer, the Coerver Coaching program will run sessions in Lorne, Geelong and Torquay over the Easter break.

Inspired by Dutch maestro Wiel Coerver, the programs suit all ages and abilities and have become increasingly sought after by parents.

The sessions suit all ages and abilities.

Mr Leijer launched Coerver Coaching in Geelong and the Surf Coast in 2022, and demand for places in the weekly and holiday programs continues to grow.

“Coerver is so effective because it’s for all ages and levels with an emphasis on fun,” Mr Leijer said.

“The kids respond to the learning styles and techniques from our great team of coaches and as well as seeing clear improvement in skills, parents often comment on their child’s increased enjoyment of the game.”

Coerver Coaching forms the foundation of top academies around the world such as Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

It also influences national federations, including World Cup Finalists France and Asian powerhouse Japan.

As a former Olympian, Championship winner and Captain of Melbourne Victory FC, Leijer is mindful of the challenges faced by aspiring athletes in regional areas.

Coerver Coaching’s goal is to provide a foundation for children to develop a love of football.

His career took him from the A-League to the English Premier League, Chinese Super League and Korea’s K-League.

“I’m fortunate that football took me around the world and has given me the opportunity to share my experience knowledge with local kids and my own two daughters,” he said, “My goal is to provide a foundation for children of all levels to develop a love for our great game.”

Coerver Coaching will be running holiday programs in Lorne, Geelong, and Torquay throughout the Easter holidays. For more information, head to coerver.com.au
