As part of being a Coerver partner club we are delighted to say that coaches from the Real Madrid academy are flying to Tyneside to host a day of coaching for our juniors. This is exclusive to partner clubs and to have such a high profile and world famous club coming is a great opportunity for West Allotment Junior players.
This has been our first season with Coerver and already we can see the benefits of their programme. The club has a philosophy to follow with all session plans laid out for the whole season so coaches know exactly what they are working on week to week. Our coaches get access on their smart phone , computer to the sessions which provide a video of each bit and a download of the plan . Included in that is how to make things easier or harder.
Apart from that a webinar is hosted by Coerver to go back through coach feedback and questions at the end of each block and as we go along a whatsapp group is there for help. The players get access to the session too showing the skill to be worked on and we all know that repetition is the key in learning any skill.
The children have really enjoyed the sessions which flow from the minute they arrive to when they leave and ensure every child gets loads of touches on the ball. We believe this is the best way to develop are children especially at the younger age groups whilst in most clubs all the coaches are doing their own thing with no long term plan.
