NF Academy is bringing the Sporting dream to Scandinavia

NF International Training Camp is more than a regular program for motivated players. It takes the player development another step further. To the world-famous Academy of Sporting Lisbon.

NF Academy’s innovative program is being rolled out in 15 cities in Scandinavia this summer. For the older players, it offers brand new opportunities beyond quality training by experienced trainers with backgrounds from Sporting and Benfica.

On the 2004, 2005 and the 2006 age categories, a player of the camp will be named and invited to participate on the NF Elite Qualification Camp in Denmark on the 23-25 August for free. This is a new training camp for high level players for where all participants coming from Norway, Sweden and Denmark will train with each other. In addition, the two best players in each age category will win a 3-day stay with the world-famous Sporting Academy in Lisbon.

The feedback we have from parents and players is very good. This new program is much more than a training camp. Players get training from professional coaches who put personal player development as their highest priority. Players and parents are expressing their love for our approach of high-quality training and relationship building with the players, says sports director Joao Plantier in NF Academy.

High quality and intensity

NF International is suitable for all motivated girls and boys from 9 to 16 years, where the coaches adapt the training exercises to their skill level. It is a challenge to all players regardless of their level, and it provides the basis for a good player development over a long period of time.

For the players who have participated in NF Academy’s programs for a long time, this is their opportunity to train with consistency. The coaches aim to take each player to their maximum level. This development happens in collaboration with their club where players constantly get feedback at their technical and tactical level.

During this summer holiday, NF Academy will have 8 NF International camps in Norway in the beginning of August. Last weekend, the experienced trainers from Portugal in Tønsberg chose three new talents for the NF Elite Qualification Camp in Denmark which now has a squad of 12 players.

Players on the edge

One of them is the goalkeeper Tord Flolid from Stavanger.

I liked the program NF Academy had in Stavanger. It was informative, and the coaches were good at keeping an eye on what each one needs to work on. I am proud to be the player of the camp for 2005, and it will be a great challenge to train in Denmark, says Sandnes Ulf keeper.

He participated in his first program with NF Academy in Stavanger. Flolid believes this is a training program that is suitable for all young players.

I can recommend this to anyone who plays football, Tord Flolid concludes.

The one year younger Yaya Yabets is another young player who is ready for the NF Elite Qualification Camp in Denmark. With Sadio Mane as his role model and Liverpol as his favorite team, the Norwegian-Ehtiopian player is a left-winger in Baune. He is looking forward for Denmark August 23.

NF Academy’s program in Bergen was first and foremost very fun and educational. It was my first time with them, but not the last for sure. This is a program that suits everyone. I am looking forward to the trainings in Denmark. It will be nice to meet new players, says Yaya Yabets.
