Under 8's Mini Soccer Leagues

Posted on 21 June 2004  - 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).

Under 8’s Mini Soccer Leagues

Tottenham Hotspur Community is establishing a series of mini-soccer leagues for the under eight-age group. The brand new initiative will bring together 450 children to form the Spurs Leagues.

Open to both boys and girls, the leagues will emphasize player development. Players of all ability levels are welcome, with the aim being to evenly and fairly distribute players throughout the teams of the league. This is to ensure a measure of parity between the teams. All training and matches will take place at one venue, each squad being allocated one of our professional coaches.

Mini League Venues
Wodson Park Sports Centre, Ware Hertfordshire
Chase Lodge, Mill Hill North London
Braintree Leisure Centre, Braintree Essex
Gosling Sports Park, Welwyn Garden City, Herts

Tottenham Hotspur Community will provide 25 weeks of training and league play will begin in September. Each team will compete in 14 matches between October and December and February and March. Soccer festivals are also arranged with all the Leagues taking part.

Tottenham Hotspur Community Project Co-ordinator Laurence Keeys is looking forward to the start of this brand new Spurs initiative. He said:

'The object of the league is to maximise player development and enjoyment, under the Tottenham Hotspur umbrella, through professional coaching. We welcome players of all abilities to come and be part of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club'

The leagues are commencing training at the following venues:
Wodson Park Sports Centre: Beginning Thursday 23rd September, starting at 5pm
Chase Lodge, Mill Hill: Beginning Thursday 23rd September, starting at 5pm
Braintree Leisure Centre: Beginning Monday 20th September starting at 5pm
