FA England Talent Day
FA 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 ALONG SIDE any football that players already participate in, so does not compromise or replace any current involvement in the game.
England Talent Days run on a yearly basis to ensure that players can be re-assessed and kept in the Talent System. ETDs will not be viewed as player development environments.
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. Age Range for ETDs: 7 – 16yrs (with flexibility on this with regards to GKs at the SGP events which also cater for 16+)
- Friday 15th March
- Racecourse Hub, Saint Mark's Road, DE21 6AL

NB: Eligibility criteria for the Para Football is set internationally and evidence of this will be required prior to a player's engagement at Regional or National level. Please be prepared to produce and share this medical evidence of the qualifying condition, should you be asked to do so either at your chosen ETD or via communications after the event.
Players who are already engaged in the FA Para Football Pathway (IE: those currently at a Talent Hub or in the Regional or National Talent Programme) DO NOT need to attend an England Talent Day.
