Fulham FC Foundation & the FA launch Para Talent Hub

Posted in News

News release:

“Fulham FC Foundation are delighted to announce the launch of a Para Talent Hub in partnership with the FA from May 2021. The aim of the Para Talent Hub is to provide a clear player pathway into the England Para Football Squads and FA Para Football Talent Pathway. The Para Talent Hub is designed for both males and females aged 7 to 16 years, with cerebral palsy, visual or hearing impairments who have the ambition to play for their country.

The England Para Talent Pathway also aims to find players who may also be ‘hidden’ in mainstream clubs, whose impairments may not be immediately obvious.

Players in the Para Talent Hub programme will stay with their club and continue to play for their teams, as this is often the best format for a player’s continued development, while Para Talent Hub sessions will focus on each players’ individual development, in line with the FA Technical Framework, and complement players’ existing training schedules with their current clubs. In this environment Fulham FC Foundation hope to help individuals progress to the next phase of the elite talent pathway; the Regional Emerging Talent Programme.

If this is you, or someone you know, click the link below to book the Second Trial Session for the new Para Talent Hub which will be taking place at:

Kingsway Sports Centre

On Tuesday 25th May 2021, 6:15 to 7:45pm

Following the Trial Sessions, those selected for the programme will get further information about the sessions starting after half term, which are likely to be fortnightly sessions, but this will be confirmed once groupings have been confirmed. If any players do not get selected for the Para Talen Hub Programme, they will be signposted to alternative sessions if necessary.
