Athletics West Para Training Program
Athletics West will host a Para Training Program on the back of our recently successful Para Athletics Come and Try Day. The Para Training Program will be open to anyone that identifies as having a limitation, disability, or impairment, either physical, intellectual or both. A medical diagnosis is not required as the program aims to provide opportunities for any person that feels they would benefit from a modified form of athletics. The event will see Para Coaches, Athletes and Community Stakeholders assist participants in trying forms of modified athletics activities, provide information on how to become involved at a local level as both participant or club volunteer, access information on impairment classification, receive physiotherapist information and meet people from the local Hub Clubs. In addition to this Athletics West will deliver provisional classification opportunities for anyone that is interested in this service.
