What is Skills Extra?
The FA Tesco Skills Extra sessions are for children aged 8-11 who have shown signs that they might be ready for the next challenge. Children invited to these sessions will have displayed a motivation to learn and improve and they will be given the opportunity to participate in a specially devised programme designed to accelerate not only their football skills but also their decision making, thinking and problem solving. The players will be observed and reviews to check progress and to ensure the programme meets their needs.
