ParalympicsGB is pleased to announce that the next Paralympic Talent Day, the sixth of its kind, will be held in Manchester on June 4, 2009.
The day will be held at Sportcity and will enable people with a disability to try numerous Paralympic sports. Representatives from the sports will also test individuals to identify any potential talent which could be fast-tracked onto a sporting pathway.
The aim of the talent search is to identify and nurture new talent that could potentially represent Great Britain at future Paralympic Games, including London 2012, and help to ensure that Britain stays one of the leading nations in the world of Paralympic sport.
The chosen date follows the BT Paralympic World Cup (20-25 May), and it is hoped that people with a disability in the Manchester area will be inspired by the event to come to the talent day or take up disability sport.
Attendance at the day is by pre-arrangement so anyone interested in attending the event will be required to fill out a talent questionnaire - downloadable in the Talent ID section of the ParalympicsGB website – www.paralympics.org.uk/talent - and submit at email@example.com
