Participation

Coaching at the Primary Stars scheme

West Ham United provide opportunities for people of all ages to get involved with a whole range of sports.

With the Foundation's Beckton hub providing first-class facilities - and a new 3G pitch opened in 2017 by Vice-Chairman Karen Brady the jewel in its crown - local people can experience sport throughout the year.

Meanwhile, at school, 5-11 year-olds are inspired by the Primary Stars programme.

For the older generation, walking football, which is showcased before every home game at the London Marathon Community Track, gives the chance to take up sport and improve health once again.
