Get certified as Physical Performance Coach.
launcing soon
N11 Academy will kick-off with a series of lectures on physical performance based on scientifically findings. Top-class players cover a distance of about 10-12 km in a game out of which 2-3 km is at high intensity and often crucial for the outcome of a game. The repeated intense activities are what we prepare the physical performance coaches for.

The program includes warm-up, heartrate measurements, youth and elite development and training, aerobic training, anaerobic training, fitness testing, power training, planning of training, monitoring loading during training and match, prevention training, recovery and rehabilitation procedures, data analysis of match and training, individual analysis and training in football, nutrition in football and the effect of environmental factors.

Two principles for physical performance courses.
contemporary approach
Our coach courses understand the demands of the game. Firstly, there are large individual differences in physical performance during a game related to the position in the team and individual style of play. Our contemporary football approach focuses on training players individually.

Secondly, the fitness training (aerobic and anaerobic) should be conducted with the ball. There are several advantages of doing fitness training with the ball. One is that the right muscles are being trained, another is that technical and tactical elements must be trained under physical demanding conditions - and finally, it stimulates the motivation of the players.

Award-winning professors, seasoned pros, & thought leaders.
