Young athletes with disabilities from across West Yorkshire gathered in Leeds for a talent spotting day recently as part of the Playground to Podium (P2P) initiative...

'Playground to Podium' is the national strategy that aims to help identify, develop and support talented young athletes with a disability, and has been developed by the Youth Sport Trust, Sport England, UK Sport and the British Paralympic Association. The Playground to Podium framework provides a pathway which will take young disabled people from PE, through club participation, to high level performance and competition and on to elite performance.

The event was apparently great fun and gave the National Governing Bodies of Football, Athletics, Boccia, Table Tennis and Wheelchair Basketball the chance to assess the potential of talented young athletes throughout the day.
