Mabbsy To Attend Player Development Programme in SA

Posted on 20 June 2013  - 12:54

Legendary former skipper Gary Mabbutt will be heading off to Johannesburg in July on behalf of the Club and our Global Coaching programmes with Investec.


'Mabbsy', who made over 600 appearances for us between 1982-1998, will be appearing at the Player Development Programme being held at Saint David’s Marist School in Johannesburg from July 1-5.

His appearance is part of the Club’s extended commitment to coaching programmes across South Africa in partnership with Investec.

Following on from successful courses held in April, the summer sessions are open to boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 17.

The programme is based on the Tottenham Hotspur syllabus and is an exciting opportunity to receive coaching by some of the Club's leading youth coaches.

Coaching aims to develop young players and achieve the following goals:

• Achieve multiple outcomes - technical / tactical / physical / psychological
• Optimise every second for the player
• Develop effective players and individuals
• Develop personality and mental strength
• Create the best learning environment
