South West Disability Athletics Championships
The South West Disability Athletics Championships is designed to be a fun way people can experience athletics in a main stadium, some for the first time! The competition is targeted at athletes aged between 8 years to 19 years but any adults that would like to come and take part can also attend. Athletes will have an impairment which restricts their athletic performance or an intellectual disability.
In order to make the competition fair and fun for everyone the Activity Alliance/British Athletics profiling system is used. The system allows athletes to be grouped; information on groupings can be found on the South West Athletics website, but please don’t worry about getting it right or wrong, you won’t be far off! Getting your athletes competing is the number one priority.
The championship will also count as an official qualification event for the national championships which will are currently being finalised and take place after this event. Please check the Activity Alliance website for more infrmation. The national competition is a fantastic opportunity for athletes to compete for their region against some of the best competition in the country (if athletes attain national qualifying times and we will notify you as the results are completed after the day).
Athletes who have never had the opportunity to take part in an event like this or do not train regularly are more than welcome; who knows what they may achieve given the opportunity?
