The revolutionary FA Skills Programme launched in 2007 to affect the long term development of the game, by raising standards in 5-11 year old players. The FA employs over 150 FA Skills Coaches across the country who are specialists in working with players aged 5-11 years, developing the players technically, physically, socially and psychologically. For further information on The FA Skills Programme please visit

FA Skills Festivals:
Whilst the role of the FA Skills Coach is wide and varied, one of the remits is to deliver to charter standard clubs. The FA Skills Coaches work with club coaches over a number of weeks  at their club, where the players are exposed to a technical coaching programme, which brings to life The FA’s vision for players, as highlighted in The FA Future Game Document: “To produce technically excellent and innovative players, with exceptional decision making skills.” Coaches are more than welcome to come along with their players and sample the experience.
