2018 Get Classified Nomination Form - Hobart

PARA-ATHLETICS CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM

In sport, classification exists so that athletes compete in fair and equal competition. Most sports have simple classification systems that group athletes according to age, gender or weight. In Paralympic Sport, the wide range of sports and disabilities create unique classification systems. Paralympic classification groups athletes according to how their disability impacts on their sport. Athletes compete against others with similar disabilities, so that the athletes who succeed do so on the basis of athletic performance.

For more information please refer to Athletics Australia's National Classification Information

Who can apply for a classification? This form is for any athlete wishing to be involved in para-athletics in Australia. There are five impairment groups in which an athlete can compete in para-athletics;

  • Physical impairment
  • Visual Impairment
  • Hearing impairment
  • Transplant Athlete
  • Intellectual Impairment 

Each impairment group has a different classification process. This classification day is specifically for those with a physical, visual or hearing impairment and transplant athletes who wish to get classified. Those with intellectual impairments are invited to have a look on the Athletics Australia website to investigate how they can get classified.
