NZ Football Talent Centre for 13th Grade
Nomads United are accredited to run an NZ Football Talent Centre for 13th Grade.
This programme provides players with a professional environment to train and develop their football with professional and NZF 'B' and 'C' Licence accredited coaches.
Talent Centres are aimed to accelerate the player’s development and unlock a higher potential as they advance toward Youth and Senior football at Nomads. The programme will also focus on the Nomads values and football philosophy/playing style which stems from our First Team through to all our Junior and Youth members. This gives our players the best chance of succeeding at Senior level, Canterbury United and beyond!
If you would like to be considered for our Talent Centre Programmes in 2019 you must attend all open trainings/trials starting in January.
If selected for the 13th Grade Talent Centre you will play in the newly formed Premier Youth League.
There will be a maximum number of 16 players invited into each Talent Centre grade.
Players will be selected and invited into the Talent Centre programme after the open trainings.
This programme runs for a minimum of 30 weeks and will involve a minimum of 90 contacts and 20 games.
All players who are not selected into the Talent Centre programme are still eligible to play for a Nomads United AFC team.
Talent Centres begin with an Information Evening for players and parents on Friday 8th March and sessions will start on Monday 11th March 2019 and run through to Thursday 31st October 2019.
The Talent Centre Programme costs $860 (incl gst) per player and includes team entry into the Christchurch International Cup in Christchurch on 9-11 July 2019.
Talent Centre teams also have the opportunity to attend the South Island Tournament at an additional cost.

Scorching Goal Football Fund
The Scorching Goal Football Fund has been established to assist children and youth attending primary or secondary school, aged between 5 years and 18 years who are from financially disadvantaged families or backgrounds, and where finance is a barrier to participation, either at club level, across development programmes or at representative level.
This is not a fund established to specifically support talented players but is rather about providing children and youth with the opportunity to continue to participate in football.
