The Special Olympics Asia Pacific and Tottenham Hotspur Foundation (THF) organised a three-day football coaching program at the Singapore Sports School to train football coaches in Asia for athletes with intellectual disability.

The football coaching programme, in partnership with the Special Olympics, is part of Tottenham Hotspur Foundation's community development program aimed at improving access to sports opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.

The program improves their sport skills which helps them to improve their self esteem and develop positive attitudes. This is the first time the program is being organised in Singapore since the partnership was established almost nine years ago.

SSSC was invited to collaborate in the program and six of our members attended the intensive football coaching program. During the coaching program, our members learned more about the Special Olympics and more importantly Tottenham Hotspur's playing philosophy.

Tottenham Hotspur Foundation coaches, Richard Allicock and Dan Slaughter were generous with sharing and imparting their skills and knowledge over a wide range of topics ranging from improving technical skills to organising a more fruitful coaching session.

Vice Chairman Thomas Lau, who was also one of the participants in the coaching programme said "Over the years, SSSC have through different ways contributed to the community. This include organising blood donation drives, and conducting fund raising activities for local charities. Our support in the program reaffirms our commitment to contribute to the community."
