Nomads Academy Training Program 2018-2019

2 months ago By Jay Catton

Full details of the new training week program for all sides U8s-U19s in the academy for the new in season campaign.

We are continuously looking to improve and progress our training and games program every season at Nomads Academy. We have made a number of changes for the coming season which we feel will be a great benefit for our young players development.

Our mini phases sides from U8-U12 will now train together over the Quay 3G at the same times on a Monday and Wednesday, utilising half a pitch each with perfect dimensions for all technical development to be done along with Nomads Moves and small sided games program.

We have also changed that mini phase goalkeeper training will take place on a Monday and not a Tuesday as previous seasons, now saving parents and keepers an extra evening of travel etc, whilst not losing out on contact time.

The new structure on Mondays also allows full half pitch, tactical work for our under 13s-under 16s youth phase sides which is key phase for tactical work, which not all of these four age groups had access to last season.

Our academy physio Gemma Bamford will be on site every Monday from 17:00-20:00 at the clubhouse, available for all academy players who may seek treatment from U8-U19.

A reminder this must be booked in with Gemma before 18:00 on the Sunday before Monday's session before, via her e mail gemma.bamford@the-nomads.co.uk. Gemma will not see any player without an e mail to book in.

Our youth phase U13s to U16s sides have increased their sessions on Thursdays to two hours also which will be split on a 4 week cycle including key strength and conditioning work along with small sides games and finishing the key focus on these evenings.

With football physical conditioning being such a vital part of the game we have included strength and conditioning sessions at Coleg Cambria, Deeside Leisure Centre and pool work at Cambrian Aquatics for our four youth phase sides.

The biggest change to the full time Nomads Academy Coleg Cambria scholars program has been the change of Thursdays sessions. Last year our sides were training Thursday evenings 21:00-22:00 which wasn’t ideal especially for our scholars who live on site, during the week finishing college at 16:00 and waiting for late session before returning home from end of working week.

The new structure will see our under 18s/scholars B side train after college on Thursday’s 16:30-18:00 in preparation for Saturday Clwyd East Mens League, with our under 19s/Scholars A side training Saturday morning 9:00-10:30 in preparation for Welsh Premier Development action on a Sunday.

In addition to the above we have weekly Friday evening sessions which have been allocated as 18:30 and 20:00 slots for our sides. These will be used as games to face chosen opposition such as Wrexham and Shrewsbury over the next six weeks or training sessions.

All teams have been allocated ten Friday sessions over the season, which will be guaranteed over the next eight months. Another big progression for the academy program. All of these Friday sessions and dates have been added to all teams individual pages.
