The clinic will be directed and delivered by West Hams UEFA qualified foundation coaches from the UK.
West Hams Academy has a proven track record of producing young talented players many of whom have played in the EPL (English Premier League) and also gone on to represent their countries at International level.
Current Academy graduates such as Declan Rice, Freddie Sears and Jermaine Defoe plus former players Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole, Michael Carrick and Frank Lampard were all graduates of the ‘Academy of Football’
The history and tradition of this famous club and the players it produces can be traced to World Cup winning captain Bobby Moore. The search for the ‘next big thing’ will continue in Dubai on the 13th and 14th December.
Clinic Content and Details
Players will be assessed by the West Ham foundation coaches both technically and tactically throughout the day. The coaches will be implementing elements of the Academy syllabus from the UK to ensure the players are being tested at the highest level and in line with UK Academy standards.
The players will participate in sessions covering all aspects of the game. From a technical level, players will focus on key aspects such as dribbling, passing and finishing, as well as testing their tactical knowledge in a series of small sided games setup to judge players decision making.
The development pathway aims to select the most talented players in the UAE and showcase their talent through consistent assessments by the West Ham coaches in Dubai as well as regular trips for the players to London to play the West Ham youth teams.
The ultimate reward will be the ability for UAE based players to train and play with the ‘Academy’ players in London.
