The FA Tesco Skills is a unique football coaching programme that gives 5-11s the opportunity to get active, learn new football skills and enjoy the game. We’ve been providing high quality football coaching for children since 2007 and have to date provided over 3 million child places on the programme.
All FA Tesco Skills coaches are fully CRB checked and first aid trained. Each coach holds a relevant youth based coaching qualifications in football to ensure they have the capabilities to give each young person the best possible experience of playing football.
The coaching we offer is unique and looks nothing like the traditional football coaching you would normally see. This is because the programme is based on a unique model that puts children at the heart of the learning process in a way that is engaging and fun. So instead of running drills over again or being told what to do by the coach, you’ll see children taking part in fun sessions that challenge them to make decisions and try new things, which enables children to learn much more effectively and helps them to build self-esteem, problem solve and learn to work as a team.
