Para Sport Multi-Sport Talent ID Day

Coming to Derby Arena on Wednesday 7 June 2023

The FA, British Cycling, Boccia England, British Triathlon and British Volleyball are working together on an inaugural and innovative event to give young people the opportunity to experience a number of Para sport opportunities in the same place on the same day as a talent ID initiative to feed their respective Para pathways.


Plan for the day:

  • Date: Wednesday 7th June 2023
  • Venue: Derby Arena, Royal Way, Pride Park, Derby, DE24 8JB
  • Age Group: 11-16
  • Time: 10am – 2pm (To allow travel time at both ends of the day)
  • Within that timeframe, there will be up to 6 x 30min slots for young people to drop in and try as many different sports as they can throughout the day
  • If groups arrive late / have to leave early, that is not a problem, it will just mean they will have access to a smaller number of 30mins slots


Sports involved:

  • Para Football
  • Para Cycling
  • Para Triathlon
  • Boccia
  • Para Volleyball / Sitting Volleyball


Please Note:

  • There may not be a specific scheduled lunch time. If this is the case, we will leave it for groups / individuals to allocate one of their 30min slots to eat at their own convenience
  • NB: Some young people may be eligible for more sports than others so school staff are asked to ensure participants understand which sports / pathways are applicable for which impairments
  • (This is included in the pre-event information circulated)
  • Sports / NGBs delivering will have a plan to ensure that there is a varied offer to ALL participants, endeavouring to cater for athletes to experience their sport even if they are not eligible for their pathway
  • Sports / NGBs will provide pathway information on the day and / or follow up with contacts to refer athletes accordingly
  • Where possible, sports / NGBs will also provide signposting for athletes who wish to play their sport but are not eligible for the talent pathway
