The FA Superkicks
Available free of charge, The FA SuperKicks app targets parents and coaches of children of any ability. With a focus on rewarding play and learning, the app is a valuable tool to encourage education and participation.
The app is packed with over one hundred active and educational challenges, from football challenges like ‘defend your gate’, ‘cross the sea’ and ‘scoring zone’, to designing a team kit or writing a football story. The challenges have been created by FA coaches and established upon The England DNA foundation phase which introduces five to eight year olds to the philosophy.
