Coaching Dynamics

The Staff

The staff are Nationally Licensed Coaches with years of experience at all levels both club and recreational levels with a passion for soccer.   Coerver® Hawaii our program is strictly “club neutral”. It will not be a venue for scouting or player recruitment, either by coaches or parents.  We also use, as assistants and “Big Brother / Big Sister” role models, top level players who have grown up with Coerver®.  As we grow we will add new trainers to the program that have completed the Coerver Youth Diploma course. 

“Skillful Players First”  is the Coerver Priority
