Queensland Academy of Sport

Sport Specific Talent Identification Campaigns

Aspiring athletes must be the age mentioned below at the time of testing:

Diving: 8 – 15 years

Skateboarding: 9 – 15 years

BMX Freestyle: 9 – 15 years

Love flying high? Want to take your sport to the next level? Is there a dare devil inside you just waiting to get out?

The Queensland Academy of Sport is partnering with three National Sport Organisations to launch action sport specific talent I.D testing days for Diving, BMX Freestyle and Skateboarding.

These testing days will have a more sport specific focus than our general Youfor2032 Talent I.D sessions with participants being assessed on skills and attributes required for these exciting action sports.

Diving, BMX Freestyle and Skateboarding are known as early specialisation sports where an athlete can achieve their highest level of performance before their maturation age, so the registration age is also lower.

If you think you have the skills to fly through the air, the drive to take your sport to a new level, and there is a dare devil inside you waiting to show us what you can do, click on the Daredevils Registration link below and sign up today.

Testing information

Initially applicants can register for one sport (BMX Freestyle, Skate or Diving) to attend a testing session. Depending on the level of demand, opportunities may open up in other sports in the coming weeks. If you have an interest in testing for another sport, please send us an email (youfor2032@dtis.qld.gov.au) and let us know what you are interested in and we will communicate directly with you if extra spots open up.

Following the testing session, those successful in being selected for the next stage of the program will receive introductory training and coaching support from the National Sporting Organisations as well as the Queensland Academy of Sport.

Register now and we can’t wait to see what you can do!
