Football Programmes

TESCO BANK – Football Challenge

The SFA has teamed up with Tesco Bank to provide some schools with a football challenge in the curriculum. This involves local SFA qualified coaches delivering a 6 week block of football coaching to P2-3 girls and boys. Sessions have been very well supported by pupils and the teachers also have a booklet / handout to use as a resource when the coaches have delivered their sessions.  We will keep you posted on the next round of Tesco Bank.

Coaching Courses
