International Player and Coach Development in Europe
The Player Development team is holding a number of Player Development Programmes and Coach Education Programmes across Europe in 2021.
PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES
Our player development syllabus has been created by our Academy staff, focusing on every aspect of the game including goal scoring, defending, possession and domination.
Each session is themed around a specific element and our FA and UEFA-qualified coaches use inspiration from our current First Team and Academy to help develop the young players on our programmes.
Our Player Development Programmes are created within the boundaries of discipline that allows the players to demonstrate flair and individualism.
COACH EDUCATION PROGRAMMES
Coaches taking part in our group training days will have access to the same coaching methods used within our Academy, which have developed the likes of Harry Kane and Harry Winks.
Our philosophy is to create an environment that attracts, retains and develops first-class players.
UPCOMING PROGRAMMES - SWITZERLAND
Global Football Development and Star Sports are joining forces again this summer and will be hosting an international Player Development Programme, 9-13 August.
Global Football Development has delivered two International Player Development programmes in Switzerland this month (July) and has seen over 250 players coached by our FA and UEFA-qualified coaches over the last three years, with each player having received a minimum of 25 hours of coaching time each year.
During this period, we have continued to deliver authentic coaching methods from our Academy and First Team to showcase to players and coaches in Switzerland.
The international programme is based on our player development syllabus, allowing players aged 9-15 the opportunity to develop every aspect of the game, including, goal scoring, defending, possession and domination.
Each player is monitored individually to ensure they train with players of similar abilities and ages, with the aim to progress every player through the ability levels. Our Player Development Programmes are created within the boundaries of discipline that allows the players to demonstrate flair and individualism.
In addition to the International Player Development Programme, we have delivered a practical coach education workshop for 12 local coaches providing a valuable insight into the Tottenham Hotspur coaching philosophy.
