Club Partner: PR High Performance Soccer Academy incorpora el metodo Coerver

The Puerto Rico Soccer Club High Performance Soccer Academy (PRHPSA) integrated the so-called Coerver method into its training, with which it hopes to further impact the development of its footballer children. This technique is designed for boys and girls between the ages of five to 16 years, and focuses on the development of individual skills and small group play. Many of the exercises are in confrontations one against one or two against two, with the intention that the minor can develop his technique in a better way. The method was developed in the 1970s by Dutch coach Wiel Coerver, who led clubs in his country such as Rapid JC and Feyenoord. Coerver understood that offensive techniques - such as overflows, dribbling and passing - not only came with the talent of a player, but could also be taught in an academic way with an individualized teaching. The technician and founder of the PRHPSA, Vitor Hugo Barros, explained that the club recruited the services of the American Joe Talley to offer the members Coerver training. Talley is a technical assistant to the Women's National Team and in the last 10 years he has worked as a youth club coach in the United States. "It's very positive, especially for those who are starting in five, seven, nine and 13 years. (The method) helps them to have more confidence in themselves, to make better decisions within the field of play, "said Barros, a Brazilian resident in Puerto Rico who led the National Team and the Islanders. PRHPSA has teams from the Sub-5 to the U-20 category. The club has stood out winning championships and subchampionships in a variety of categories, both male and female, in tournaments and in the Champions Cup, Bayamón League, Central League, Metro League, GPS Tournament, Power League Tournament and Cayey Cup. Since his arrival on the island to lead high performance football, Barros noticed deficiencies in junior soccer, which led him to found the PRHPSA after a step through several clubs on the island. "When I came to Puerto Rico, I came to work with the National Team. But I realize that there was a lot missing from the base; the players entered the court and had no game pattern, "recalled Barros, who describes himself satisfied with the achievements of the PRHPSA.
