Join us at the FA Para Football Talent Pathway days

The FA are organising FA Para Football Talent Pathway days across the country, including here in our area.

England Talent Days are utilised as a player's first engagement with the Para Football Pathway and as the first selective environment in the player pathway.

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 Para Football player pathway runs ALONGSIDE any football that players already participate in, so does not compromise or replace any current involvement in the game.


para dayThe 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

The age range for potential participants is 7–16 years old. However, this is flexible for non-impaired goalkeepers.
