    “Wanted to drop a note to say thank you for creating the online diploma course.

    I just completed review of all 5 modules and I must say the quality of the programming was top tier. I thought the flow of the course was very fluid and logical while the duration was very manageable. I also very much appreciated the FAQ section in the end.

    In addition, I thought the way you folks continually stressed the Coerver philosophy throughout the course was very helpful in that it reminded me of what the core principles of the system is built upon.”

    “Charlie I cannot say enough. I’ve been using everything I learned from the course.

    Tonight one of the boys asked me why haven’t we been doing sessions like this before? I asked wasn’t this one of the hardest sessions you’ve had this season? Answer….”yes…but this was so much more fun.”….. they didn’t stop working so hard the whole 90 minutes session and this is not counting the 15 minutes warm up before the session started as they have been showing up earlier and earlier.

    “Charlie, Thank you so much for the course training and the material provided. In just three weeks from attending the course, I have already seen results from my U10 boys by implementing the Coerver Coaching method.

    Not only have I seen growth in the players, but they are enjoying every minute of it! I can’t wait to use the method to develop the U13 and U15 boys that I will be coaching in the near future.

    With the different variations to each training exercise, there will be something to challenge them all.

    Thank you again for everything!

    “I’m a true convert.

    The approach makes sense on paper. The kids proved it on the field during the clinic.

    And now, I’m seeing my kids growing. The Coerver system just works. I added the 4 goal game last week. (Would have done it earlier, but I had to buy 2 more goals) The kids were complaining when I asked them to stop for a water break.

    They wanted to keep playing. It has been amazing.”
