FA Talent Hub

Potential Potential


Derby County Community Trust run an FA Talent Hub which aim to deliver engagement sessions for players aged 7-16 with cerebral palsy, deaf players and partially sighted players. 

The FA disability football performance unit has a clear vision: to develop winning England teams. In order to do so, the mission is to deliver the world’s leading talent programme for disability sport, maximising player and coach potential.

Our squads currently train bi-monthly at Belper Leisure Centre and we have seen numerous successes with players being selected for international teams over the years.

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.

Trials are held annually and BSL support is provided at all sessions where possible.
