About the Programme

The FA Lidl Skills is a unique football coaching programme that gives 5-11s of all abilities the opportunity to get active, learn new football skills and enjoy the game.  We provide holiday football coaching and we also work within primary schools providing specialist football coaching.  Find out more about The FA Lidl Skills and how you can get involved.
The FA Lidl Skills offers football coaching sessions during the school holidays at venues throughout England. Our holiday football coaching sessions are a great way for children to try the programme for the first time and they cater for girls and boys of all abilities.

At Lidl, we believe everyone should be able to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. That's why we keep our low prices on fresh fruit and veg, and also why we're proud to be a lead partner of the FA Lidl Skills programme.

Together, with The FA, we will be creating 1.2 million opportunities for children to get involved. One of the ways we are doing this is through our Lidl Football Zones - a fun and interactive FA Lidl Skills taster, giving families the chance to get involved and talk to FA Coaches.
