Children's Football

Lidl Children's football developmentSkills Centres

Lidl skills centres are put on by Football Development throughout the year within Clackmannanshire to give children between 5 to 12 yrs the opportunity to participate and get a taste of football in a fun and safe environment, whilst giving them a chance to express their football skills.

They are coached by qualified Scottish FA coaches who work to develop and improve their skills. The sessions are progressively structured to allow children to advance and improve at their own rate.
