Whitsun Half-term Football Courses

This Whitsun Half-Term we are staging 7 courses.  The coaching is aimed towards the 6-16 age category.  We aim to provide a safe and friendly environment for children of all abilities to enjoy football, with the emphasis on fun and participation.  Each child will be put into a group according to their age or ability.
The morning sessions will consist of learning new skills.  These skills will then be put into practice in the afternoon when the games take place.  On the last day of each course, parents are invited at 1.00 pm to watch the finals of the World Cup and penalty competition and the presentation of awards.

All our coaching staff hold recognised F.A Coaching awards and have attended the FA Child Protection Workshop - Children - Ensuring Safety in Football.  Therefore we guarantee you will receive both expert coaching and relevant protection for your child.

For players that reach a suitable standard, there is a chance of being recommended to West Ham United's Academy.
