Culture: Identity and Values of the Nomads Soccer Club

The club promotes developing soccer players who have a feel and love for the game as well as the club. In order to do this, we have to create a learning environment that allows them to ascend to the best they can be on and off the field. Being a Nomad player carries a responsibility to continue the traditions laid down over 40 years.  Which demands a behavior on and off the field which brings credit to the club and themselves. Players and coaches will endeavor to win every game, however, no matter what the result, they will show respect for opponents, officials and opposing coaches during and after the game.

Vision: Ambitions of the Nomads Soccer Club

The Nomads aspire to be a leading Club in the development of soccer players in the United States, irrespective of the player’s financial ability to pay to play.  We are not a business in the sense of being motivated by “profits”, the goal is to run the Club in a businesslike manner in order to support the players and coaches.  The Club seeks to play at the highest level in the United States and beyond.  We created a residency program in October 2014, and a high school academic program in 2013.  We hope to continue improving these programs to allow the Club to grow and give us the ability to invite more players from around the United States. The main function of our Club is to develop players who can be successful in their chosen career path. We can produce highly technical players of outstanding quality.
