SCHOOLS FOOTBALL COACHING PROGRAMME

Posted on 22 March 2005  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

SCHOOLS FOOTBALL COACHING PROGRAMME


One of the Tottenham Hotspur Community’s key aims is to provide more opportunities for young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities to participate in football. Qualified FA coaches are providing curriculum P.E. football sessions and after school clubs. These sessions are held at the schools themselves or are based at the White Hart Lane indoor ball court facility.


In accordance with the requirements of the National Curriculum, the scheme has developed coaching and education workshops and inclusive ‘Football For Everybody’ events for children with disabilities. The workshops have been specifically designed to encourage children to participate in football training and carry out educational tasks around the ground, which are directly linked to the PE curriculum. The ‘Football For Everybody ‘ events encourage children with disabilities and their peers to participate in fun activities such as football circuits, penalty shoot-out competitions and small-sided matches.


SCHOOLS MULTI ACTIVITY SPORTS PROGRAMME

Whilst Tottenham Hotspur might be a name strongly associated with football, Tottenham Hotspur Community recognises that young people are motivated by a wide variety of sports and fitness pursuits.


Therefore, we incorporate a range of physical opportunities into our coaching programmes.


The Tottenham Hotspur Community leaders/coaches may surprise you with the variety of activities that can comprise a coaching session. As well as promoting a range of adapted sports such as cricket, tennis, rounders, boccia and new age curling, our coaches are able to organise imaginative skill-development and team building tasks such as parachute games and multi-sports circuits. The Tottenham Hotspur Community team believe in a person-centred approach to sport and leisure, and will not limit an individual’s right to inclusion in our disability coaching by focusing solely on football.
