Welcome to the New York Coerver Soccer Academy
Rob Bruley and Kieran McIlvenny are the Coaching Directors for New York Coerver Soccer Academy. Our coaching philosophy is to expose players, of all ages and abilities, to the technical (dribbling, passing, receiving, shooting, and heading) and tactical (speed of play, moving with/without the ball, compactness of play) foundations of the game using Coerver Coaching’s curriculum “Pyramid of Player Development”. Coerver Coaching's curriculum is designed to challenge both the mental and physical portions of the game and is age and skill appropriate so everyone is comfortable within the group. Our goal is to energize each player with a first-class experience that will improve self-esteem, create a passion and appreciation for the game, and enhance a healthy, challenging learning environment. Sessions are serious with the intent to teach, but never lose sight of the fact that soccer is a game and the player's enjoyment is number one.
Rob has worked with the Coerver Coaching Method for the past 19 years. A semi professional player in England he spent 8 seasons playing with one of the most famous non-league teams in the world the Corinthian-Casuals. After his player career he also coached at Corinthian-Casuals for 3 years. Rob is an English Football Association qualified coach and has worked with Coerver Coaching throughout England, Japan and for the past 16 years in the USA. Rob has been a head coach with the Lake Placid Soccer Centre, in helping to develop their day camps and coaching at their summer residential camps at Lake Placid and St Lawrence University.
