The FA Tesco Skills Programme is offering free holiday coaching taster sessions at the Football Development Centre, in Clover Hill Road, on Tuesday, July 24 and Monday, July 30.

The coaching is for boys and girls aged five to 11, with each session lasting two hours and being led by a fully-qualified FA Tesco skills coach.

Run by The Football Association and funded by Tesco and Sport England, the programme is providing coaching support to children across Norfolk.

So far the programme has provided 3.3m places on football skills courses nationally and aims to provide 4.7m places by 2014.

Spencer Thorpe, coach with The FA Tesco skills team in Norwich, said: “We’ve just hit a milestone of three million places on the programme since the scheme began in 2007 and our free taster sessions during the school holidays are a fantastic way to get even more children involved in the wider FA Tesco Skills Programme.

“It’s a great opportunity for children to get the best specialist coaching while getting fit and active at the same time.”
