A holistic approach to developing both the person and the player. 
Nomads United AFC pre-academy environment is designed for players wanting to push themselves to become the best that they can be and who one day want to enter our Youth Academy (13-17) environment. 

The Nomads pre-academy is a continuation from our Nomads PLUS+ programme offered in 7-10th Grade. The pre-academy programme is designed and delivered by our football department as well as our advanced junior/youth team coaches who are on the New Zealand Football advanced coaching pathway.

11-12 years is part of 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 pre-academy teams will train 3x per week; 1x WPX Pre-Academy training, 1x Futsal training (term two/three only) and 1x team specific training. The teams will also play together on a Saturday in the top divisions of Mainland Football 11th & 12th Grade. For team-specific trainings and gamedays, the teams will be coached by qualified coaches (not parent coaches) under the guidance of the Nomads football department. There will be 2x Pre-Academy teams per age group. 

Pre-academy registrations are now closed for 2022.
