PROVISIONAL CLASSIFICATION FORM
PARA-ATHLETES with PHYSICAL IMPAIRMENT
Classification is integral to Para- Sport as it provides the structure for fair and equitable competition.
Each Para- Sport has a different sports specific Classification System.
A Provisional Classification is a temporary classification that enables a Para-Athlete to enter a Para-Sport
event for the first time. It places a Para-Athlete into a competition category where they compete against
other athletes with a similar activity limitation resulting from impairment.
A Provisional Classification is valid for two years from time of issue or earlier if the Para-Athlete can be
assessed by a classification panel for a National Classification.
PLEASE NOTE FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS A provisional classification is valid for the
length of time the Para-Athlete is at secondary school or earlier if they receive a National Classification.
