Working alongside The FA, Sky Blues in the Community are helping to launch the new Disability Talent Identification Programme.

The purpose of the programme is to identify young players deemed to possess higher levels of ability and to place them in a developmental programme designed to produce football excellence in conjunction with personal development.
 
To kick-off proceedings, SBitC will be hosting the FA England Talent Day at the Moat House Leisure Centre on Friday 24rd March 2017. From 4pm to 6:30pm on the day, players aged 12-16 years old will take part in a number of drills and small-sided games whilst being carefully observed and assessed by FA coaches and scouts.
 
Outstanding performers will progress through the FA Disability Talent Pathway. The Pathway comprises of FA Disability Talent Identification Programmes, FA Regional Impairment Specific Centres of Excellence and FA England Impairment Specific Development Squads – with the ultimate goal of developing players to represent the England Elite Impairment Specific Squads in European and World Competitions.
 
The programme is open to players with the following disabilities; Cerebral Palsy, Partially Sighted, Deaf Male/Female, Learning Disability, Amputee, Blind.
 
To register or find out more about this session, please contact Sky Blues in the Community’s Training & Skills officer Andrew Hopcroft by calling 024 7678 6349 or email andrew.hopcroft@ccfc.co.uk.
