NYFA’s long-term goal is to create better people. Through a holistic approach and evidence-based methodology, NYFA will achieve this. We aim to create better youth leaders as well as an enhanced environment around, and in, sports in order to thereby increase the quality of youth sports.
Our work is based on the equal value of all people and our aim is to create a business where everyone feels welcome regardless of gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, nationality or political opinion and we do not accept any form of discrimination, bullying or harassment because of these.
NYFA believes that leaders of children, and young leaders bear an extraordinary responsibility as role models. A responsibility that affects what we say and how we behave, both on and off the pitch.
“We place a huge importance on education and developing good people as well as good players. You can’t just concentrate on the pitch.”
