Event description: Last year Shrewsbury Town In The Community announced they had been awarded a licence by The FA to host the new Talent Identification Programme for disabled young players for the 2015/ 16 season.
FA Talent Identification Programmes (TIPs) will be utilised as environments to identify and signpost players to the ‘right’ environment at that point in time (they will run on a yearly basis to ensure that players can be viewed annually and kept in the Talent System). TIPs will commence with an England Talent Day before leading into a six week prescriptive player assessment/signposting period.
England Talent Day is an integral part of The FA’s new Disability Talent Pathway, identifying young players aged between 12-16 years old for 2015/16 season and is one of 35 which will be taking place. The programme is quality assured to support the development of young talented disabled players, offering a clear pathway.
The new pathway aims to recruit players that can progress to FA Regional Talent Centres, FA Emerging Talent Programme, England Development Squads and England Elite Squads as highlighted within The FA’s Disability Player Pathway and as shown below:
- Learning Disability
- Cerebral Palsy
- Partially Sighted
- Deaf (Male and Female)
