The main goal is to have fun and learn the basics. Being part of the team is consequence and merit.
Time and dedication.
Our coaches are the guardians of the Namba method. Therefore, they do not train more than two teams at once. And they undergo specific and constant training.
Our brand takes the pitch lessons to business. We offer business lectures given by the greatest players that inspired the method. Namba is forming the leaders of the future.
Former Home United honorary general secretary Muhammad Azni reiterates that “coaches play an important role in the entire eco system of football”. He says: “Good or bad football players, the coach has a direct responsibility in producing them.” He says he has observed that local coaches “barely gets trained to sharpen all these other soft skills. Technical skills are provided but this part is not developed over the years. Most coaches want to win trophies but showed very little interest to develop the true potential of players outside technical skills”. (The Independent)
With that in mind, we have developed a project that respects the coaches - they can not have more than two teams per season - and they have an experienced group of assistants.
Each squad will train together for the entire season. Football is a collective sport. If there are stars, they only shine because the team is its constellation.
New players undergo a serious method training process - which is taught not only on the pitch, but with different physical activities, showing videos, books and playing games - and all the athletes are carefully evaluated before being invited to join the team.
Meritocracy and commitment are required if the player wants to participate in competitions.
A player knows his/hers position. He or she watches the game carefully and knows how to pass a ball. Dribbles are done with confidence . If something goes wrong, the player always has the support of the group to get up and do better next time. The team supports those who have the courage to dare.
Every goal, every defense is a joint effort.
Team building, respect, elegance, leadership.
When a Namba wears our jerseys, he/she is not a soft drink poster boy/girl.
The player carries values - self confidence, critical thinking, resilience.
We expect players to obey the rules and to play with joy.
At the same time, we have parents who respect the leadership of the coaches and who understand that children must have fun.
Victory is part of a much larger and more complex universe. No one plays to lose (or to a draw), but the path traced to win has lifelong consequences.
Namba is much more than a club, it is a method created to prepare the children for life.
When a Namba wears the jersey, he/she is prepared for the reality of life.
And this child does not lose the joy of the game. Never.
Because any and every game is won inside your head first.
Healthy mind in healthy body.
