Academy youngsters staying sharp through home programmes


West Ham United’s stars of the future are keeping up their A-game through bespoke programmes which they can carry out remotely.

In close conjunction with the Academy of Football’s medical, fitness and sports science staff, the Claret and Blue starlets have been furthering their physical development away from Chadwell Heath through a variety of challenging exercises, devised with safety in mind.

You can watch above a montage of the Academy youngsters in action during the past two weeks.

As Academy Manager Ricky Martin explained earlier this week, “To keep our Academy players prepared, we’ve set individual programmes for the players all the way down the different age phases.

“We’re going to keep alert to all possible situations and be ready to support our players, our staff and our families to provide them with programmes while they’re away from the Academy, getting them ready to return to action, safe and healthy.”

There’s plenty of fun to be had by the youngsters as well in the programmes – watch our Under-15s take on the #StayAtHomeChallenge below!
