Course Information

With athletics clubs being more inclusive than ever, the possibility of coaching an athlete with a disability is highly likely. This webinar will provide information on classification to ensure coaches and clubs have an awareness of the process to allow athletes to progress in the sport.


Classification in Para Athletics is used to division athletes with a disability into competition categories, according to how their impairment affects their performance in sports. It ensures fairness and success because of an athlete’s skill, fitness, and performance regardless of disability.


This webinar will explore the following:

  • Reasons for classification
  • Eligibility for classification
  • Impairment groups and related sports classes
  • The process of classification and relevant contacts


To book in for this webinar please either contact your club secretary or contact and I will send you registration details. If you need any further information please let me know.
