Soccer Schools to grace Chadwell Heath!

West Ham United Foundation Soccer Schools are set to return for the Whitsun holidays

West Ham United Foundation Soccer Schools are set to return for the Whitsun holidays with a one-off opportunity for kids to play at the First Team training ground in Chadwell Heath!

Open to children of all abilities aged between 3 and 15 years old, participants will be able to get a taste of what it’s like to be a Premier League footballer for a week as they use the same facilities as their West Ham heroes.

All of our 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 each and every venue. 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 from Tuesday 31st May – Friday 3rd June
