FA England Para Football Talent Days

FA England Para Football Talent Days  

FA England Talent Days are a player’s first engagement with the Para Football Pathway and as the first selective environment in the player pathway. The pathway runs alongside football that players already take part in, so does not compromise current involvement in the game.  

The programme will identify and signpost players to the ‘right’ environment at that point in time and seeks to feed the subsequent Regional and National levels of the pathway.  

The impairment groups included in England Talent Day activities are: 

– Players who are deaf 

– Players who have cerebral palsy (and are ambulant) 

– Players who are partially sighted
