FA Tesco Skills in Schools
Tesco Great School Run
“We’ve got to give every 5 to 11 year old in England the opportunity to play and enjoy the game. And if they want to get better, we need to show them how.”
- Sir Trevor Brooking, FA Director of Football Development and founder of The FA Tesco Skills Programme
The FA aims to give as many 5-11 year olds in England the opportunity to enjoy the game and become the best football players they can be through The FA Tesco Skills Programme.
As well as developing the players of the future, the Programme also attracts and develops the best specialist youth coaches in the country. Every FA Tesco Skills coach is chosen for their technical expertise and their ability to engage with children. They also complete The FA Youth Award to ensure they are specialists at age appropriate coaching.
The players and the coaches coming through The FA Tesco Skills Programme will help shape the future of football in England. To find out more about The FA’s £1million a week investment into grassroots football, visit TheFA.com/GetIntoFootball.
