Frequently asked questions

Q: What level of football ability or experience do I need to join the Program?

A: We do not have a set level of ability or experience for participation in the EDP. We expect the level of participants to be of a standard equivalent to NPL or if you play in your local league, equivalent to the Premier League or a Division 1 side. If you have not played at any of these levels, this does not exclude you from joining the EDP, you will only improve by training with and against better players!

Q: Why should I choose this program over others that are out there?

A: Our EDP is unique in that we are the only offering where we have genuine coaches from an EPL club who will be running the program. Our coaches have coached with Tottenham Hotspur for a number of years and worked all over the globe. You can learn more about our coaches on our website. Our off field staff are also some of the best in the industry who will use their knowledge and experience to deliver the highest quality program in the market.

Q: What will I get out of this program?

A: The EDP is an abbreviated version of the UOW Tottenham Hotspur Global Football Program which is a program available to UOW students. That program runs across the academic year, for 36 weeks. All aspects of that program have been replicated into the five days of the EDP which will give you a better understanding of the tactical and technical areas of the game, basic nutrition and cooking information, recovery education and strategies, gym introduction, physical testing and an introduction to UOW.

Q: Why Tottenham Hotspur FC?

A: Tottenham Hotspur is renowned across the globe for developing talented young players for both Club and country. This includes current first team players such as Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Harry Winks. Tottenham’s Global Football Programs offer world-class experiences, inspiring young players by using training methods direct from our Academy to support every player to reach their full potential. Together with the UOW, the Global Football Program will allow students the opportunity to become some of the best players in the region.

Q: What if I contract COVID-19 before the program inhibiting my participation?

A: UOW will follow any and all guidelines from NSW Health at the time of the program. If a postponement is necessary due to health issues or wet weather, we will offer you the choice of a full refund, or we can hold your place for the next edition of the program.
