Coerver Coaching ACT Performance Academy 2021/22 Graduation Ceremony
The Coerver Coaching ACT Performance Academy Graduation was held at the University of Canberra with players, parents, carers and family members attending. The night was a celebration of the player’s efforts throughout the Coerver Coaching ACT Performance Academy 2021/22 program.
Players in the Coerver Coaching ACT Performance Academy participated in 80+ hours of training, including Home Study, across 4 months which included technical training, themed sessions, game days, testing and the Coerver Coaching Asia Pacific Performance Camp. Even in these testing times the effort and skill on display throughout the course of the program from all players was admirable.
The Coerver® Coaching ACT Performance Academy is a football school for serious, dedicated individuals seeking additional professional training in order to improve their technical ability and become more advanced players. Coerver Coaching ACT would like to make special mention to those players and families who travelled from the surrounding regions to be a part of this year’s Performance Academy program.
Coerver Coaching ACT Performance Academy Director, Adrian Haynes said “It is very satisfying to see so many players who have been with us for 3, 4, 5 up to 8 years. The idea that you can attend the Performance Academy for a one off year and master the necessary skills to take your game to the next level is unfortunately not the case. As with any type of skill set you are endeavoring to master you need to have continuous, deliberate, structured, and repetitive practice over many years. The players at this year’s Academy were outstanding their focus, drive and determination ensured for a very positive Coerver experience and learning outcomes and I look forward to the chance to work with them again at the next Performance Academy program.”
One player from each squad was awarded the Player of the Program for 2021/22 and they received an adidas Coerver pack, including a personalized trophy, adidas football and Coerver Coaching jacket.
