What is Skillabus?

We've distilled 25 years of excellence in sports coaching into structured courses that help children build their skills from beginner to star performer, boosting their confidence and physical and mental health. Our 500 challenges are fun for parents too, so they're also great for making the most of any precious spare moments as a family.

How does it work?

We have 3 sports programmes to choose from. This video shows some of our pre-school challenges first, then challenges for primary school children and finally some from our football's coming home programme. We cover a wide range of sports so select the one you're after and enjoy having a go! Every challenge has its own demonstration video plus tips on technique, what to do if you don't have the right equipment and how to do it indoors if the weather's bad.

What others say

“Skillabus provides a fun, engaging and incomparable grounding in the skills required across a multitude of sports. The scheme is the best of its kind that I’ve seen and will be a fantastic foundation for children looking to learn and have fun through sport. ”

“The Sport Diddy challenges provide a blueprint for anybody who wants to start out on the right foot. The little dudes are pretty amazing!”

“PE Challenges is the perfect way to get kids moving. Our pupils have absolutely loved having a go at the various challenges. This resource is amazing, I would highly recommend it!”

“I truly love all of your videos. Such a clever concept and I genuinely get so pumped when your kids make a shot. I am only 22 but I know I'll be doing this stuff with my children one day.”


“My boys have been really enjoying it - requesting to do some as soon as we get home from school, and planning how and where they can do some on a weekend. This has never happened before - they’ll do sport, but usually under duress!”

Mrs N (Parent & Teacher, Harrogate)

“I am in total awe! Their skills are amazing and you are an amazing dad :-)”

“I have been following Stuart since reading a blog in 2013. I was drawn to his work because he developed a way to help your kid build fun skills with connection instead of judgement. He shows us how to use sports as an opportunity to connect with our children and build their confidence.”
