UK Sports Talent ID campaign#DiscoverYour ParaPotential is currently accepting applications from individuals who have an impairment, are aged over 16 and believe they have what it takes to get to the top in para sport.
At this time, many of the Paralympic sports that are funded by UK Sport are seeking individuals with specific profiles to join their programmes. The intention is to identify high potential individuals who, with the right support, have a realistic opportunity to achieve selection to represent Great Britain at the Tokyo Paralympic Games in 2020. #DiscoverYour ParaPotential currently has opportunities with numerous sports including Boccia, Para-Athletics, Para-Canoe, Para-Cycling, Para-Rowing, Para-Swimming and Wheelchair Tennis.
If you have a passion for sport, are ready for a new challenge, aspire to represent Great Britain and win a Paralympic medal then sign-up via the below link before the end of August for an opportunity to be invited to a future talent identification assessment.
Each application will be assessed against sport-specific profiles and successful candidates will be invited to appropriate assessment events in late 2017 / early 2018. Applicants that are unsuccessful on this occasion will have their details kept on record for consideration as part of any further recruitment drives that may be undertaken in the future.
You can sign up via the UK Sport website here
