FA SKILLS PROGRAMME (5-11 yrs)

HOW YOUR SCHOOL CAN JOIN IN AND PLAY BETTER FOOTBALL

The Football Association has an exciting programme for 5-11 year olds which ISFA believes is of particular benefit to prep schools and junior schools.

The programme was launched at Wembley Stadium in 2007 by Sir Trevor Brooking and Frank Lampard, with the aim of giving one million children in England top quality skills coaching. Youngsters enrolled in the scheme can watch videos, download skills challenges and get specialist advice and encouragement.

This programme is aimed partly at improving the technical skills of the country’s elite players but also at encouraging all children, no matter what their ability level, to improve their skills. "It's about improving everyone and trying to get the best out of everyone”, says Lampard, a former pupil of Brentwood School.

ISFA believes that this programme offers a great deal to the independent sector.
