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.
Constant innovation and improvement is at the forefront of Nomads United AFC as we are continually searching for ways to better develop and provide opportunities for Nomads players. In 2021 Nomads are excited to announce the launch of our pre-academy programme. The Nomads pre-academy is a continuation from our Nomads PLUS+ programme offered in 7-10th Grade. The pre-academy programme is designed and coached by our Technical Director, Fernando Lambert and Football Development Officer, JD Dennen.
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 Nomads PLUS+, 1x Futsal (term two/three only) and 1x team-specific training. The teams will also play together on a Saturday in the A-Band divisions of Mainland Football 11th & 12th Grade. For team-specific trainings and gamedays, the teams will be coached by volunteer coaches under the guidance of the Nomads football department. There will be 2x Pre-Academy teams per age group.
