West Ham United Elite Player ID Camp
March 14th - 16th @ GVTC
Thursday March 17th, 2016
This week SA United Soccer Club hosted the West Ham United Elite Player ID Camp at the GVTC Communications Sportsplex. West Ham United are a professional soccer club from London, England who play in the English Premier League. West Ham have a rich history of producing some of England's finest players including Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole, Frank Lampard and Jermain Defoe.
The camp was run by former West Ham United and Manchester City midfielder Ian Bishop. Ian spent three days working with the players on various aspects including skill development, ball mastery, passing/receiving and finishing. Ian spent the three days coaching the players and identifying some of the talent that was on show. Those players excelling this week will be invited to the Summer National residential camp, staffed by the Academy coaches from the West Ham Academy in London and Directed by Tony Carr MBE (Member of the order of the British Empire) for his services to football (soccer). Players excelling at the residential camp will be invited to England for a West Ham United Academy experience.
SA United Soccer Club would like to extend our thanks to GIS and Ian Bishop for running a quality ID camp. The players had a fantastic time and enjoyed being introduced to some of the styles and themes of West Ham United.
For any players selected for the National Camp, you will be notified via email soon.
