Multi Class Athletes

​South West School Sport provides opportunities for multi - class athletes to participate in Queensland School Sport carnivals in swimming, cross country and track and field.  Students qualify for these events through school to district to regional trials. Due to the small number of multi class students in the region, students participate in regional trials in their age group with abled bodied athletes. Results are then compared to multi class state qualifying standards.

Schools in the south west are also able to participate in the various multi class carnivals and 'come and try' days organised by Darling Downs School Sport. The dates and venues of these events are advised to schools during term 1 each year.

Athletes with disabilities wishing to participate in competitive school sport events organised by South West School Sport, Darling Downs School Sport and Queensland School Sport must first obtain official classification from the relevant governing body. Classification forms are able to be accessed through the Queensland School Sport website.

Schools, parents, carers with questions regarding classification, Multi Class sport etc. should refer to the AWD Information letter, (DOCX, 54KB) or contact the South West Regional School Sport Officer, Tim Leadbetter, on (07) 4572 6513.
