PS 1718

West Ham United Foundation have now launched their Performance Squad for the 2017/18 season.

The Foundation Performance Squad has been created with the aim of bridging the gap between grassroots and academy level football through a high-quality bespoke coaching programme coupled with showcase fixtures against professional academies.

Each Performance Squad member will receive specialised training sessions, twice weekly, across the duration of a 30-week programme. Training will take place on Monday & Wednesday evenings from 5:30pm to 7:00pm across the season at Woodlands School (Woodlands Approach, Basildon, SS16 5BA).

Performance Squad members will also be offered the following incentives during the 17/18 season:

  • A dedicated, age group specific team coach for the season
  • A minimum of four showcase fixtures vs. local professional academies/pre-academies/development squads
  • Full Foundation Performance Squad match/training kit [TBC]
  • A minimum of two masterclass skill workshops
  • 50% discount on selected WHUF Soccer School programmes

Trials will be taking place for the Performance Squad on the following dates:
