The senior program is the last progression of CREW'S curriculum. The senior program is the last progression of CREW'S curriculum. The Senior Program continues to use the COERVER method for technical training. We as a COERVER club view the game not just as an 11 v 11 contest on a whole field but as constantly changing sequences of play between two, three and sometimes four players. Team systems are important, but they are only as good as the individual players in them. Players cannot compensate for poor control or inaccurate passing and shooting.
CREW believes that individual technique and small group skills in attack and defense determine a team's success. COERVER Coaching therefore focuses on individual skill development and small group play. CREW aims to offer this proven philosophy to all players. CREW players at this stage have been introduced to different tactics and now we continue to introduce advanced tactics with different systems of play (4-4-2 with flat back 4, 4-4-2 with stopper, 3-5-2, 4-3-3 to ensure all of our players are able to make different in-game adjustments trying to neutralize the strengths of the opposing time and exploit our teams strengths. Knowing different systems of play allow our players to be able to fit into anyone's system and it is especially important for college when they will have a new coach and may be asked to play in a different system.
During this time period is important that our CREW players start thinking about playing at the collegiate level. CREW helps all our players interested in playing at the collegiate level and in that mindset our CREW team's tournament structure is “showcase tournaments”. This permits the college coach to recruit our players. Showcase tournaments attended are up to the individual team and coach. All U15-U18 teams participate in the PAWest or Colonial Leagues and in the Spring compete in the PAWest State Cup. The goal of our CREW teams is to move out of the State Tournament, into the Regional Tournament and extend the season by making it to the National Tournament. The Senior Program officially begins in January and continues through June or longer depending upon each team’s success. All CREW teams will have two indoor training sessions and will compete in the GaREAT indoor soccer league. Each team will also have two outdoor training sessions and will compete in multiple Tournaments based on each team and age.
