Founded in 2009, FAB Academy is the vision of Nas Bashir, UEFA Pro Licence Coach, passionate football man and advocate of investing in young people. 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.
