What do you like the most about coaching?

What I love about coaching is to see the growth of both players and teams and the empathy generated within players and coaches, which leads to sharing the same line of thought and values, allowing a harmonious and positive development.


Why should youth players join NF Academy?

NF Academy gives the opportunity to the highly motivated players to experience a different training methodology from what they are used to back in Scandinavia. At the same time, we allow the players to express themselves and be the best that they can be, strengthening their confidence and developing their decision making.
