FA Skills

Coaching in Education

teaching the next generation

Football plays an important role within schools, colleges and universities. From the first day at school until the last day at university.

Here at Norfolk FA we offer various programmes and initiatives so that your school have the tools necessary to inspire a new generation of footballers. 

FA Skills Programme

The FA Skills programme works in over 2500 primary schools each year, providing lessons for the children against the requirements of the PE National Curriculum and supports teachers’ professional learning.

As well as helping to develop the technique, ball skills and confidence of children in primary schools, The FA Skills coaches aim to pass on invaluable lesson ideas and guidance on the delivery of football to the pupils’ teachers.

If your school hasn't had a chance to work with The FA Skills programme yet, please send us an email at Andy.Reynolds@thefa.com.
