Adaptive Indoor Rowing Classification

All competitors with a physical, visual or learning impairment entering the Adaptive events must go through the appropriate classification process for their impairment prior to entries closing at 12:00 (noon) on Tuesday, 26 November 2024.

In order to enter, adaptive competitors must follow one of two processes. You can be classified in two ways.

Option 1: The physical impairment (PI) classification process  

The physical impairment (PI) classification process will be performed by two classifiers, one medical and one technical. The classifiers will assess the competitor’s functional ability through a medical evaluation and a technical evaluation on a rowing machine and/or water. At the end of classification the competitor will be given one of four outcomes:
1) Awarded a Para Class
2) Allocated an Adaptive Class
3) Allocated an Indoor Adaptive Rowing Class (IAR1-7) or
4) Ineligible for either a Para, Adaptive and Indoor Adaptive Class as they do not meet the minimum criteria.

Option 2: Submit a self-declaration form

You must submit a self-declaration form to be eligible to enter the Adaptive Open category The Adaptive Open category is only for competitors who would like to compete in an Adaptive event but are not eligible for either a Para Class or Adaptive Class.
