Tottenham Hotspur Football Club Academy develops talented young footballers from the age of eight to 23 years. Following the implementation of the Premier League Elite Player Performance Plan and our Audit by Double Pass Ltd we were awarded Category One status. The Academy employs a large team of staff to identify, recruit, coach, develop and support approximately 205 talented young players.
To be one of the world’s leading football Clubs renowned for a strong association with its community and a long tradition of developing young talent that plays football the ‘Tottenham Hotspur’ way.
To create an elite environment that attracts, retains and develops top quality players providing an ongoing supply of academy graduates to the First Team squad, whilst ensuring those individuals who fall short of this standard have the necessary skills and education to enable them to achieve success either at another football club or in a vocational career.
The Academy players in the Professional Development phase are full-time and are registered on Scholarship contracts, as part of their all-round education the players complete an academic education programme alongside their football commitments. Our players in the Youth Development phase combine their club training programme with attendance at their own school, this involves training evenings, weekends and during day release. The Foundation phase squads training programmes take place after school and at weekends.
The Academy education programme is in place and encourages each player to reach his full potential as he passes through the development phases. This education provision is designed to be flexible and to provide support for each player to achieve whilst remaining in their school of preference. It includes both formal and informal education which reinforces the high expectations of the Academy in relation to the ‘Tottenham Hotspur Standard’ of: Team Spirit; Friendship; Excellence; Elite Player Conduct; Co-operation; Effort and Persistence and Respect, and encompasses our holistic approach.
The Academy squads participate in the Premier League games programme along with a number of National, European and Worldwide tournaments.
