Nomads United AFC's Fun Football programme is an in-house programme which caters for children 7-8 years of age. It is aimed at promoting the “Fun Football” philosophy of New Zealand Football’s Junior Framework. The objectives are to develop the basic skills already learnt, including football techniques and coordination, provide a fun, playful environment which encourages children to develop a positive sense of self, respect for others, a positive disposition to learn new skills, and a sense of pride in their ability to master them. We also aim to improve cognitive thinking, coordination and body control whilst developing basic football techniques to form a strong base as they grow and progress through the Nomads United programmes.

The Club provides a playing shirt for the season as part of your membership subscription. We rely on volunteers to manage the teams as gameday leaders. If you are able to help out please email email@example.com. Priority of team placement will go to volunteer parents in the first instance. We will do our best to place all players into a team however we cannot guarantee placement. In the event that we cannot place you in a team you will be provided a full refund of your membership fees.
Parent involvement: Please note that parents/guardians from each team will be required to help with organising their team on the day. They will also need to assist with running of the BBQ for a session at least once during the season. A timetable will be sent out once teams have been finalised.
Social Media: It's common Club practice to share photos of players attending our sessions on our social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. If you do NOT want your child to be included in these photos on our socials, please advise the club in writing by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
