Calling young soccer players

English Barclays Premiership

Young people interested in playing football are being invited to take part in the club's summer programme of courses. They begin on July 17 and continue at various venues, including White Hart Lane, until September.

Spurs' Football in the Community programme has been working in the local communities for two years to maximise children's involvement in football, and to help them gain maximum satisfaction from the game. The courses are for boys and girls of mixed ability aged 6-13 years, aimed at improving skills and the knowledge of the game in a fun and friendly environment.

All children are placed into groups according to age and ability. The children participate in football skills in the morning with competitions and small-sided games in the afternoons. Each child receives a Tottenham Hotspur Goodie Bag at the end of the course. Tottenham Hotspur F.I.T.C. Coaches are all fully qualified by the FA, hold a First Aid Certificate and have been checked by the police.

Parents should provide a packed lunch and plenty of fluid as well as appropriate clothing, footwear and accessories (sun cream, hat etc.). All weekly courses are five days and cost £45 (except week six which lasts four days). If you would prefer your child to attend individual days, the cost is £12 per day.

Please 020 8365 5049 during normal office hours for application form or more information.


The Community Office is also running courses at White Hart Lane. These will be held between 11am and 4pm and are open to boys and girls. The children will need a packed lunch and plenty to drink. The coaching will be held in our indoor ball court. Trainers are required. Parents are not permitted to stay due to the general working day of the club. The children may bring a camera because they will hopefully meet a first team player. The course also includes a tour of the ground. Each child will receive a certificate and a Tottenham Hotspur goodie bag.

The dates for the White Hart Lane courses are on Thursdays: July 27, August 3, August 10, August 17, August 24, August 31 and cost £25 per day.
