The FA Lidl Skills Programme

The FA Lidl Skills Programme is a revolutionary new approach to youth coaching that has been providing high quality, affordable football skills courses for 5 to 11 year olds of all abilities since 2007.

 About The FA Lidl Skills Programme

Co-ordinated by The FA, the Lidl Skills Programme employs 106 specialist FA coaches to develop the football skills of children in England. 

Since 2007 we have provided more than two million places on football skills courses, and by 2014 we aim to provide another 2.7 million places. 

We're committed to helping boys and girls in England live a more active lifestyle and to be the best football players they can. We also want them to have fun, grow in confidence and learn teamwork and responsibility. Your children can take part in The FA Lidl Skills Programme through their primary school or by signing up to take part in our regular After School Skills Centres and Free Holiday Sessions.
