West Ham United Foundation is pleased to announce its Whitsun Soccer Schools will be held at the Hammers' Chadwell Heath Training Ground.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young Hammers fans to practice their skills at the same facilities as their West Ham heroes. 

With access to the changing rooms, indoor artificial pitch and the outside grounds, this rare opportunity will see local youngsters enjoy a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the first-team Training Ground.       

Places on the Chadwell Heath course will be limited and based on a first-come, first-serve basis, with parents advised to book online early to avoid disappointment.

In addition, the Foundation will be offering a variety of other Soccer School venues across east London and Essex.

Open to children of all abilities aged between three and 15, these courses provide a safe, friendly and enjoyable environment for youngsters to improve their football skills.

Participants will receive a West Ham United certificate and medal, while Academy scouts and coaches are to attend. Recent holiday programmes have seen several youngsters referred to the Club’s famed Academy!
Children are asked to bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink, as well as appropriate footwear, shin pads and suitable clothing in the event of bad weather.

All coaching staff are FA qualified, CRB checked and trained in emergency first aid and child protection.   

Courses run from Tuesday 26 May until Friday 29 May, beginning at 9am and ending at 3pm.
