An FA Para Football Talent Hub programme is now underway, providing a FREE Talent Hub for male & female participants with Cerebral Palsy or who are deaf or partially sighted (ages 7-16).
Sessions are taking place at Redwell Leisure Centre in Wellingborough, organised by Northampton Town Community Trust and delivered by FA qualified elite coaches.
The Talent Hub will give more players with specific impairments the opportunity to play football and join the England Para Talent Pathway. The Para Talent Pathway aims to find players who are ‘hidden’ in mainstream clubs, whose impairments may not be immediately obvious.
These players are encouraged to stay with their club to continue to play for their teams, as this is often the best format for a player’s continued development. Talent hubs will deliver engagement sessions for players with cerebral palsy, deaf players and partially sighted players. Sessions will enable continued talent identification/confirmation opportunities and will impact younger players.
The sessions run every other week at Redwell Leisure Centre, Wellingborough between 5:30pm - 7:00pm.
