FAB ACADEMY BISHAM ABBEY
WEEKLY COACHING FOR BOYS & GIRLS AGED 5 – 15 YEARS
First and foremost, these session are great FUN! Our coaches work hard to ensure that all the children are engaged for the whole session and look forward to training in a top class environment.
Working to a structured, and fun program, these sessions provide additional, challenging, coaching for boys and girls who are already playing for local clubs and those already training with academies at professional clubs.
Sessions are run in blocks of ten weeks and provide an excellent grounding in all aspects if the game, encouraging the players to experience different coaching topics within the ten week course. We aim to run 4 x 10 week phases each season. The coaches give verbal feedback on a weekly basis and at the end of the Winter phase and the Summer phase players receive a written assessment of their time at FAB if they have completed a minimum number of weeks training.
In addition to coaching boys and girls to play in outfield positions, FAB ACADEMY also offers expert goal keeping coaching to improve the individual goalkeeper. These sessions run alongside the outfield sessions to allow the goalkeeper to take part in the group team play sessions.
If during the course the coaching team believe that the player has reached a level of skill and performance that is worth developing further, they will be invited to continue their training for a further 10 weeks. We also aim to arrange matches against other football academies during the school holidays so that players get the opportunity to play in competitive showcase games against professional academies where they can be scouted. Games played previously include: PSA Academy, Barnet, Oxford United, Reading FC, Chelsea FC, Fulham FC, AFC Wimbledon, Brentford and many more. The opportunity is there for the players to progress.
This process continues and can potentially, given the time, training and effort, lead to the offer of a place within the full-time academy when they reach school leaving age in Year 11.
Our Junior Academy evening training sessions offer professional coaching to the above average players and are aimed at providing additional coaching for players and build on any grassroots/ club football training they get. Players are welcome to attend a free trial where they can see if they enjoy the session and our coaches can assess their ability level. To apply for a trial please use the link below.

Nas has spent his whole career in the football industry, first as a player then as both a coach and manager. FAB Academy represents the culmination of his twenty years working with young players and is the perfect environment for his ideals and passion to shine.
The Academy offers boys and girls a professional learning environment with the aim of developing young people both on and off the pitch. All the coaching staff are level 2, 3, 4 and 5 qualified and have years of experience coaching and developing young players.
The Academy is based at The National Sports Centre at a Bisham Abbey, near Marlow in Buckinghamshire. The Centre was the subject of a £7 million investment in the past few years, and now provides one of the most respected and high quality sports facilities in the UK, indeed, Bisham Abbey provided more Olympic medallists at the 2012 Games than any other in the UK.
With three newly laid pitches, including a state of the art 3G pitch and a Desso grass pitch, affording a surface to the same quality as Wembley Stadium, and access to the wider range of facilities and staff at Bisham Abbey, we have the best possible environment to coach young people.
