    USA - Player Development Programme - Andromeda FC, Dallas, August 2012


    As part of our highly successful summer tour of the USA, the month-long trip culminated in a week-long Player/Coach Development Programme in Dallas. 

    Andromeda2Tottenham Hotspur Football Development worked alongside Andromeda FC Academy staff as part of a coach mentoring programme to deliver coaching sessions to players throughout all age-groups of the club. Spurs coaches worked alongside the Andromeda coaching staff as part of our coach mentoring programme which is incorporated alongside our Elite Player Development sessions.

     

    The skill and enthusiasm of the Spurs coaches drew high praise from Aaron Jacobs, Director of Coaching for Andromeda FC’s U-16/U-18 Academy: “They worked with our U-16 Academy players and conducted practices with such enthusiasm and passion. His knowledge and expertise was evident and he and his team were able to communicate and convey the essence of each session in detail – and at times with humour. Our players were positive, learnt a great deal and responded to to the coaches immediately. It was a tremendous camp and a privilege to have all the Tottenham Hotspur Coaching Programmes team with us."

    Jay Dane, U-18 Development Academy Head Coach of Andromeda FC added: “The Tottenham staff brought over a lot of energy and enthusiasm when working with our groups. The sessions flowed very well and the content was just what I was after from a technical and tactical standpoint. The players worked their socks off and got loads out of the two days.”

    Following on from the tour the Coaching Programmes team have welcomed back Andromeda U-16 US Academy side from Dallas for a week-long residential programme which ran from 18-26 August. As part of a full ‘Tottenham Hotspur Experience,’ players have taken part in specifically-designed coaching sessions led by our Coaching Programmes staff at Spurs Lodge, Chigwell. There has also been a structured match programme as well as stadium tours of Wembley and White Hart Lane – the world famous home of Spurs!
