PLAYER ID CAMP FAQ’s


What makes West Ham United International Academy Player ID Camps different from other soccer camps?

-The West Ham United Academy has a proven reputation of producing some of the best soccer players in the world.  Our camps utilize the same drills and coaching philosophies used at the Academy.  Our coaches are highly experienced and meet the impeccable standards of the West Ham United Academy.  The competitive and progressive nature of the Player ID Camps, National Camps, and the West Ham United Academy Experience in London, adds a dynamic not found in any other soccer camp experience.



Why are the sessions shorter than other camps and divided over 3 days?

How does the camp progression work?
