The FA Lidl Skills Programme

The FA Lidl Skills is a unique football coaching programme that gives 5-11 year olds of all abilities the opportunity to get active, learn new football skills and enjoy the game. The programme provides after-school football coaching, holiday football coaching and also specialist coaching within primary schools.

The FA Lidl Skills Coaching In Schools

A primary part of The FA Lidl Skills programme is to provide primary schools with specialist football coaching and support for teachers, working with over 1,200 schools each year. Our coaches will typically work with each primary school once every week for the duration of half a term, providing specialist, age appropriate coaching which is in line with the National Curriculum and is entirely free of charge.

After School And Holiday Skills Coaching

The FA Lidl Skills provides weekly after school Skills Centres and free football coaching during the school holidays for boys and girls aged 5-11 years. We offer sessions that cater for all abilities and our coaching is age appropriate and child-centred, helping every child to develop at their own pace.

Charter Standard Clubs

The FA Lidl Skills team now work alongside coaches of local Charter Standard Clubs. They deliver sessions which are designed to improve both the players and coaches. The sessions are all tailored to support the needs of each individual club.
