FA Skills Programme

The FA Skills Programme is a revolutionary new approach to youth coaching for boys and girls of all abilities aged between 5 and 11 in England. We deliver fun exciting football sessions in Schools, run after school Skills Centers and deliver in local Charter Standard Clubs across Derbyshire.

The FA Skills is a unique football coaching programme that gives 5-11s of all abilities the opportunity to get active, learn new football skills and enjoy the game. We’ve been providing high quality football coaching courses for children since 2007 and have to date provided over 3 million child places on the programme.

The FA Skills is based on a unique FA coaching model that provides specialist, age appropriate football coaching for children which is child-centred and caters for all ability levels. The programme provides after-school football coaching courses, holiday football coaching and also work within primary schools providing specialist football coaching.

We are committed to helping boys and girls in England live a more active lifestyle and to be the best football players they can. We also want them to have fun, grow in confidence and learn teamwork and responsibility. Your children can take part in The FA Skills Programme through their primary school or by signing up to take part in our regular After School Skills Centres and Free Holiday Sessions.
