The EPA Football Academy offers expert, fun instruction and a wide range of programme's for all ages of players. Programme's include camps, clinics, leagues and tournaments. From pre-school programs such as Mini Hammers (ages 3-5) to professionally managed adult leagues, EPA delivers the best football community experience in Bangkok.
The EPA football programme emphasises individual skill development and teamwork. Children ages 3-18 learn through expert instruction from fully qualified coaches, where they will have the opportunity to play all year round not just during school terms. Our Mini Hammers classes for 3-5-year old’s focus on the fundamentals of sport, while our developmental youth classes for 5-14-year old’s concentrate on more advanced skills development, and tactical awareness.
Working with our partners, the West Ham United Foundation, our Elite Player Pathway will provide an opportunity for young players to work with highly qualified staff to progress their game and provide educational and professional pathways.
Following an EPA FC Academy Talent ID Trial, players are signposted and invited to join sessions that are the correct level for them. Our Talent ID Trials are open for 5 to 16 year olds.
All of our sessions are based on the English FA's 4-corner model with the session including Technical, Physical, Psychological and Social aspects.
EPA Mini Hammers is a fast-paced, energetic program that gives preschoolers the opportunity to run and play while they improve muscle coordination and learn the concepts of teamwork and cooperation. Mini Hammers features a variety of fun lessons and exercises designed to familiarise the young player with football. Classes are divided into smaller age groups allowing coaches to utilise age and level appropriate teaching tools.
Open trials run year round for children of all ability levels and ages from 5 and above. The aim is for participation and enjoyment of sport. Some players just want to come and have fun and play football with their friends.
The soccer School and skills centre is used to signpost children to the correct level and team.
Our EPA Development Centre will run year round and we work on a 10 week syllabus of learning with structured learning outcomes and key coaching points. Our aim is to develop core technical skills and starting to understand tactics. We want players to progress from the Development Centre into the Elite Development Centre.
All our development players will be invited to join our West Ham Foundation coaching camps and and VIP coaching days we organise.
Our EPA Elite Development Centre will run year round and we work on a 10 week syllabus of learning developed by and mirroring West Ham United Foundation Academy's core programme. Our aim is to further develop core technical skills and fully understand tactics. Players signposted for the Elite Player Development Centre will undergo a 4 week trial when they move into the programme to ensure they are of the highest possible technical standard. During the 4 week trials we will work with the players to ensure we work on any skills that require further development.
All our elite development players will be invited to join our West Ham Foundation elite coaching clinics and VIP coaching days.
