Para Athletics Training
Para Athletics is the most inclusive Para sport with great Paralympic pathways.
These free monthly sessions allow Para athletes from across Auckland to come together to train in a Para specific setting. The sessions will cover both track and field events from an introductory to advanced level.
The programme is open to those 5+ years, male or female and caters for visual impairments and a wide range of physical disabilities including, but not limited to: cerebral palsy, spina bifida, spinal cord injuries, amputees and short stature.
There will be different groups based on age:
- 5-12 years
- 13-18 years
- 18 + years
With great coaches taking the sessions we will ensure that everyone is pushed to achieve their potential whether it is early days on your sporting journey or if you're already training and competing regularly.
If you've got any questions regarding whether you can get involved then please get in touch :)
