West Ham brings train­ing camp

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

SOCCER: In a ma­jor coup for ju­nior soccer in the re­gion, West Ham United will be bring­ing its Ocea­nia Academy train­ing camp to the Whit­sun­days.

The ac­claimed clinic will be over­seen by a se­nior mem­ber of the West Ham United Ocea­nia Academy coach­ing staff, as well as coaches from West Ham.

Tal­ented play­ers who ex­cel at the camp could even be in­vited to at­tend a na­tional res­i­den­tial camp.

Those who re­ally stand out could spend a week at the club in London or for a UK de­vel­op­ment tour.

“The in­ten­tion is to open this clinic up to all kids in the Whit­sun­days,” WFC com­mit­tee mem­ber Al­lan Milostic said.

“We will be invit­ing Proser­pine Taipans and Bowen Blast Foot­ball clubs and ad­ver­tis­ing in all the local school news­let­ters, as we are hop­ing to use this clinic as an op­por­tu­nity to at­tract more kids and fam­i­lies to the sport.”

The clinic costs $175 but those who regis­ter by June 11 will get the chance to win a free clinic.

It will be at Whit­sun­day Sportspark on June 26–27 for girls and boys aged seven–17.
