This online nomination form is for students that wish to compete in the Para/Multi Class Trial events at the 2018 Challenge Games. The Para Trials allow students to compete in events where if the qualifiers are met, can use their challenge games performances to be selected to compete at the Queensland School State Athletics Championships in October.
To compete as an invitational athlete, schools need to ensure that the following has been met:
As there are age limitations for Queensland States, the same does apply for the invitational at the Challenge Games. Students who are still at school are allowed to compete if they are the below age as of the 31 December of that year
10, 11, 12 year olds - Primary School
13 – 19 year olds - Secondary School
Note: Primary school ages cannot nominate / compete in the 400m
The Challenge Games Committee and School Sport strongly support students getting a classification and participating in a range of sports throughout North Queensland.
When nominating for the para trials, a classification number must be given. HI, II etc will not be accepted unless the student plans on getting classified during or shortly after the games.
There will be classifiers at the event to give anyone with a physical disability the opportunity to be classified.
Anyone without a classification can particiapate in the trials, as long as they plan on getting classified shortly after the Challenge Games and can provide us with their classification number at a later date.
