Partnership with IPSO
Entry Level Football Club Placement
From September 2019 every player will be given the opportunity to join a local FA affiliated grass roots football club. This will give players extra training and opportunity to earn a place in a team and play regular league football.
Diet & Nutrition
Diet & nutrition advice is woven into academy life. The importance of a good diet and how to manage nutrition is stressed at all times and integrated into academy life.
US Soccer Scholarships
With our partnership with Soccer Assist we can give every player the chance to win a scholarship to study at a US university or college whilst playing league soccer throughout.
Our players take different routes on graduation from IHM. Some have signed pro-club youth academy contracts in the UK and abroad. Others have gone onto to study at a UK university whilst playing semi-pro football. Others have signed pro club contracts with non UK clubs, whilst some have already won soccer scholarships with prestigious US universities.
