What is Classification?

"Disabled athletes competing have a competitive disadvantage due to their impairments. A system has been put in place to minimise the impact of impairments in sport performance and to ensure the success of the athlete is determined by their skill, fitness, power, endurance, tactical ability and mental focus" - British Swimming

How can I be Classified? 

Swim England offer Talent Identification days where swimmers can be assessed against Para swimming criteria specific to their impairment in a safe environment. Some of the Nations best coaches and athletes attend these days to make the day knowledgeable, and an overall great experience. For more details and upcoming dates, please follow:
