South Coast School Sport offers students with a disability (Para Athletes)  the opportunity to participate in an inclusive school sport program. Athletes with disabilities are able to compete in both Able Bodied Events as well as Para Events. 

Regional trials are held in Cross Country, Swimming and Track and Field for athletes with a disability. Please refer to Disability sport (PDF, 95 KB)​.

Due to the small number of para students in the region, students participate in regional trials in their age group with able bodied athletes. Results are then compared to Para state qualifying standards.

Students are selected in the regional team to attend the Queensland School Sport State Championships.

 

View the regional calendar​ for the trial dates and information.

Classification
