Intellectual Impairment Talent Development Event 2016

Scottish Disability Sport (SDS) in partnership with scottishathleticsScottish Swimming and Table Tennis Scotland are delivering an Intellectual Impairment Talent Development Event in Glasgow at the end of January.  The event offers would-be para athletes the chance to get involved in the three sports on offer. 

It is designed to give individuals with a learning disability (intellectual impairment) an insight into high performance sport, whilst providing an opportunity to progress. The goal is also to identify individuals with an intellectual impairment who currently participate in either athletics, swimming or table tennis, who produce performances that indicate they have the potential to move forward and challenge for representative honours.

The event is being held at Scotstoun Campus in Glasgow on Sunday 31 January (11am to 1pm) and will be staffed by governing body staff and coaches.
