FA Tesco Skills in Schools
Tesco Great School Run
The FA Tesco Skills Programme works in over 1,000 primary schools a year, providing specialist football skills coaching for children and their teachers. Our coaches will typically work with a primary school in their county one day a week for the duration of half a term, providing specialist, age appropriate coaching for all ages from Years 1 to 6. The Programme’s revolutionary approach to coaching football skills is truly child-centred, is for all ability levels, and focuses on individual boys’ and girls' learning needs.
As well as helping to develop the technique, ball skills and confidence of children in primary schools, The FA Tesco Skills coaches aim to pass on invaluable lesson ideas and guidance on football coaching to their teachers. If you are a teacher and The FA Tesco Skills coaches have been working with your school, this website will provide you with resources and football skills videos to allow you to carry on teaching the Programme after they’ve gone.
If your school hasn’t had a chance to work with The FA Tesco Skills Programme yet, you can also register your interest in getting a Skills coach into your school in the future.
