Choice international, in exclusive partnership with West Ham United Foundation, is pleased to announce the formal opening of The International Academy of Football.
West Ham United FC is one of the leading and most famous teams within the English Premier League and is widely-regarded 'The Academy of football' due to its proud history of developing world-class players within its Player Development Programme. Among the many illustrious names to have emerged from the Academy are England World Cup-winning captain Bobby Moore, Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand, current England international Declan Rice and club captain Mark Noble.
The new International Academy of Football Programme presents international student-athletes with the opportunity to experience world-class training and match-play under the direction of the West Ham United Foundation coaching team.
Importantly, The Academy programme provides the opportunity for student-athletes to measure themselves against the best, be seen by leading scouts, and at the same time, complete a first-class education.
Our team provides support and guidance to help student-athletes maximise their success on the field; whilst providing opportunities for trying out for US Sports Scholarships and gaining professional coaching, scouting and referee qualifications.
The programme incorporates a solid educational foundation and offers participants a range of qualifications; including university pathway programmes, Higher National Diplomas, A levels and BTEC Sports Management diplomas. In addition, students may study SAT, TOEFL, IELTS or intensive English courses.
The programme opens up a wide range of career opportunities; whether as a professional player or by pursuing an academic and/or Management role. Participants can choose to pursue ambitions as a professional player, coach, progress to a US university with a sports scholarship or receive a sports degree in England.
This is an elite programme designed for student-athletes with the ambition and talent to succeed.
