About Us

Coerver Coaching stands at the forefront of soccer education worldwide, offering comprehensive skill-based training for players, coaches, and clubs across 51 countries.

Our History

Founded in 1984 by Alf Galustian and former Chelsea star Charlie Cooke, Coerver Coaching emerged from their shared admiration for the philosophy of Dutch coach Wiel Coerver. Together, they crafted a teaching program unparalleled in its approach, setting a new standard in football education.

Alf and Charlie’s unwavering dedication and extensive expertise have been instrumental in shaping Coerver into the esteemed and sought-after football coaching brand it is today. Their commitment has transformed the landscape of football instruction, influencing players and coaches worldwide. From its inception, Alf and Charlie’s mission was clear:

“To develop Skilled, Confident, Creative players who excel both individually and as part of a team.”

This foundational mission remains central to Coerver’s ethos, driving its evolution while staying true to its core principles. These principles serve as the cornerstone for the “Method” and “Curriculum” delivered to every player and coach, earning Coerver widespread recognition and respect in the global football community.

You want your player to have serious fun, right?


While your player is working hard and giving their best effort, the game should be fun! We encourage the growth mindset in the training process and respect players to experience the game at their own pace. If we make the game enjoyable and present adversity they can overcome, then your player’s concentration will skyrocket. This will lead to more intrinsic motivation and self-confidence to reach their goals and score more too!
