FA Skills Centres

Calling all 5-11 year old boys and girls…

Do you want to play football?

Do you want to have fun, meet new friends and learn new skills?

Do you want to work with the counties leading youth football coaches?

If the answer is YES then you need to join an FA Skills Centre!

The FA Skills Programme was started in 2007 and has thus far offered over 5 million children the chance to have fun, meet new friends and learn about the game of football with coaching, support and guidance from highly qualified and experienced youth football coaches.
