The CMTAA is encouraged by this initiative taken by the Australian Paralympic Committee (APC).
They are searching for the next generation of talented Para-athletes to compete at a future Paralympic Games. Additionally, they provide opportunities for Para-athletes already engaged within a Para-sport pathway who may be considering a transition to an alternative sport.
We are conducting testing sessions throughout the country to evaluate which Para-sports individuals may be eligible for, in addition to which Para-sports might be best suited depending on the type and level of impairment, history in sport and a range of other considerations
Testing will be conducted in the following cities over the coming months:
- Sydney, Sunday 12th August
- Gold Coast, Saturday 18th August
- Brisbane, Sunday 19th August
- Perth, Sunday 9th September
- Darwin, Sunday 23rd September
- Hobart, Sunday 7th October
- Melbourne, Sunday 21st October
- Canberra, Sunday 18th November
- Adelaide, Sunday 9th December
WHAT IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT TO A TESTING DAY?
We still want to hear from those interested in a Para-sport pathway. One of the options on the registration link considers this and enables individuals to upload impairment information and footage participating in an activity and we will follow up with you independent of the Para-sport testing days.
WHO’S ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE?
Individuals with a physical impairment, vision impairment or mild intellectual impairment
