Player Pathway Opportunities
National Camps are held on the Gold Coast each year, normally in September. These camps have been overseen by West Ham Academy Assistant Academy Director Paul Heffer and supported by West Ham United Academy coaches and well known and respected Australian coaches.
The Development Tour is a fantastic football opportunity for our younger footballers. Selection occurs each year at the National Camp with players invited to tour the following year. This is a 10/11 day tour where players are given a Complimentary Place at the National Camp to prepare and bond as a team before departing for England to play games and have coaching sessions at Premier League Academies and attend either EPL, Championship, Champions League or Europa League games.
The Football Experience is an extension of the Development Tour and takes the groups to England, Scotland and possibly France over a two-week period. Coaching Sessions and Games at Professional Clubs and attending at least 5 Professional Games (EPL, Championship, SPL, French League 1, Champions League or Europa League).
