Kuala Lumpur, 8 December 2022 – AIA Malaysia once again held its Score with Spurs Junior Camp football coaching programme on 26 and 27 November at Radia Arena in Shah Alam, successfully gathering 1,000 boys and girls between the age of 7 and 13 years to learn, train and play football the Tottenham Hotspur way!
The exciting two-day programme was led by Tottenham Hotspur Global Football Development Coaches (GFDC), Shannon Moloney and Jerome Baker, together with 17 local football coaches.
Besides brushing up on their basic football skills of dribbling, passing and shooting, the boys and girls took part in other team activities and games that further showcased their on-pitch talents.
Through these fun challenges, 20 budding football players were scouted to join AIA Malaysia’s first Spurs Phuket Elite Camp in 2023 where they will be given an all-expense paid trip to Phuket, Thailand to undergo a week-long training with the Spurs coaches. The boys and girls were not only selected based on their technical and tactical skills but also how they demonstrated commendable psychological and social traits within their respective teams.
Commenting on the programme, Heng Zee Wang, Chief Marketing Officer of AIA Malaysia said: “Sports play an important role in our children’s development as it helps them develop physical skills, make friends, learn about teamwork even instil self-confidence. We are happy that Score with Spurs Junior Camp provides our children access to world-class football training and an avenue for them to stay active and healthy in a fun way. We look forward to organising more initiatives such as this to encourage younger generation to take up the sport and live Healthier, Longer, Better Lives.”
Started off as a virtual football coaching programme in 2021 during the pandemic with 100 participants, the Score with Spurs Junior Camp programme returned as an on-ground event this year, recording an overwhelming response with all 1,000 participation slots snatched up within just three days of launching it to the public.
