Youfor2032 – Program snapshot

The Talent Identification Program, Youfor2032, has been designed to identify our next generation of elite athletes. The aim is to develop and nurture young Queensland talents who have the potential to win on the world stage at the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Athletic ability coupled with a great attitude to excel are the key ingredients in this program. Young athletes may be currently competing in a sport that isn’t part of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, but we may identity a sport that’s perfect for their athletic strengths. In addition, you may be already in a sport but have more potential in another.

Those successful in being selected for the program will receive substantial training, coaching and development support, from state and national sporting organisations as well as the Queensland Academy of Sport. More details about the program will become available to athletes who are selected.
