The FA have now arranged a special Mumsnet football coaching session at the following location during May half term:
York Wednesday 29 May 1-3pm
We'd love loads of you to go along with your children (max 2 per adult) and try the sessions, learn about whats available in your area and then to:
a) ~ Share your feedback on a thread on Mumsnet b) ~ Help spread the word about the FA Tesco Skills programme in your local area this could be by telling a friend about it, posting about it on your Facebook page, encouraging your school to sign up or tweeting about it
The FA Tesco Skills programme is held at venues across England you can find one near you here. All holiday sessions are free, and coaching at weekly Skills Centres only costs £1 or £2 to cover venue hire.
In addition FA Tesco Skills coaches are qualified to work in schools, delivering PE lessons supporting the teacher. These sessions are free to schools and are delivered in line with what the children are already studying in their PE lessons. They currently work with over 1200 schools a year, free of charge for between six and 12 weeks. If you think your school would be interested in this please do click here and pass it on!
The MN session above will feature high quality child-centred coaching with lots of games and fun. Parking is provided and full details of the venue will be sent to each selected MNer. On the day your child will need to wear comfortable sports kit and bring a snack and refreshment. Babes in arms are welcome to come and watch with you. The sessions are open to all children regardless of ability.
If you'd like to attend please add your details here and we will be in touch with those selected.
As an added incentive everyone who attends a MN session above, adds their feedback and lets us know how they have spread the word will be entered into a prize draw where entered into a prize draw where one lucky MNer will win £150 to spend on England kit in the FA Shop.
Thanks and we hope the children (and you) have lots of fun! MNHQ
