ARDROSSAN Winton Rovers Football Club is not just a football club – it is also a community benefit society.
And that means the club’s core values are based on what’s best for the community the club serves.
The directors continue to develop the club to ensure it can be the best it can be and with this in mind the Youth Academy recently announced a partnership with Coerver, the global football coaching program inspired by the lessons of Wiel Coerver, a Dutch football coach. .
It is widely recognized as the best method of teaching football skills suitable for all ages, but especially for players aged 5-16 of all levels and their parents, coaches and teachers, which focuses on the development of individual skills and small group play, which is also endorsed and recommended by top football federations and game experts.
Academy Secretary Andy Fullarton said: “We worked hard to bring Coerver on because we knew the program helped the personal development of people within a football structure.
“Our players and coaches will receive monthly training sessions and coaching education from qualified Coerver coaches.

“It will install a club-wide football development program ensuring that we have a proven training program that will allow every individual to be the best they can be.”
The ultimate goal of the Coerver coaching method is to develop competent, confident and creative players, making the game fun to practice and play.
It will teach sportsmanship and respect for all and value winning, but not more than character and performance, while providing a safe and educational experience that meets best practice criteria.
Andy continued: “We are very proud not only to be a partner club of Coerver, but also to be the largest partner club in Ayrshire, supporting as many children as possible in their football development.
“The training is a little better because it takes place in Winton Park under the spotlight, making it an extra special experience for every child, coach and parent involved.”
