Easter coaching courses open

Places are available for young fans wanting to take part in the West Ham United in the Community coaching courses to be held during the Easter half-term break.

West Ham United in the Community aim to provide a safe and friendly environment for children of all abilities aged 6-16 years to enjoy football, with the emphasis on fun, enjoyment and participation. Each child will be put into a group according to their age and ability.

Courses start at 9.30am and finish at 2.30pm, with the children focusing on learning new skills in the morning before games take place in the afternoon. For players that reach a suitable standard, there is a chance of being recommended to the West Ham United Academy.

All the courses are week-long and are £55 per child. To book a place, please call the Community department on 020 7473 7720.
