NSU First Kicks, Junior and Youth Training Structure and Vision and Philosophy


We want to develop the ethos that ‘Our Club’ is where young players get the best coaching


NSU Coaches will educate our players to play a progressive, forward thinking style of football within each of the development phases. Therefore retaining the ball, playing through the thirds and recognition of when and where to play forwards with variation and fluidity, which is key to individual and team progression.

In games we look to regain the ball at the earliest opportunity based on the opposition’s tactics and style of play, focusing on the transition of possession at all times. Honesty, hard work and commitment are all fundamental core values of the club and are expected from all players irrespective of age or position. We promote individuality and allow the players to express themselves, as we feel this is very important in our aim to produce skilful, talented footballers.
