Nomads PLUS +
Nomads PLUS + is a new NZ Football accredited 36 week program designed and coached by our Technical Director, Fernando Lambert and Football Development Officer, JD Dennen. This programme is available for all players 9th-12th grade.
9-12 years is the ‘golden age’ of learning both technically and tactically for any footballer. This programme is 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 will be taught at an age appropriate level through the club’s Talent Centre and Nomads PLUS + programmes. This give our players the best chance of succeeding at senior level, Canterbury United and beyond!
Note: there is an expectation for all 'A' Band players to attend the Nomads PLUS + programme.
Players will also have the option to buy the Nomads PLUS + training kit if they wish, however this is not compulsory.
If players are not ‘financial members’ of the club but still wish to do this programme they can, however there will be an additional $50 payable. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to register and you are not a Nomads member.

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.
