The FA Skills Centre

The FA Skills Centres

Rye Hills Secondary School, Redcar

As part of the Football Association’s drive to raise standards in 5-11 year olds a team of full time professional Skills Coaches have been employed across the country. These coaches have undertaken specialist age appropriate coaching courses designed to make them specialists in improving and developing the Football and Fundamental skills of the 5-11 year age group.

As part of this programme Skills Coaches provide young players with opportunities to receive quality coaching at FA Skill Centres which are designed to work on fundamental movement patterns and skills along with specific Football techniques and skills which are essential to the game. Coaching will also be put in place where the children are empowered to make their own decisions and solve game related problems. Children will be encouraged to experiment and explore their own ideas, with the understanding that making mistakes is part of the learning curve.
