Norsk Fotballakademis dissemination of training methods and programs

Norsk Fotballakademi are coaching children aged 8-12 by the same principles used in the renowned French football academies. This way of training is different from the traditional methods used here in Norway. NFA’s training is emphasizing on this age group’s development of human motor and technical footballing skills. The age from 8-12 is also characterized as the “golden age”, which implies that with the right training this gives an opportunity to magnify these players’ development in a playful and positive setting.

Norsk Fotballakademi also offers to convey its training methods and principles to other interested parties (clubs, coaches and other interested). In a three-hour course, split into one theoretical part and one practical part, the following is included:

The content of the French method
