With athletic clubs right across Australia, it is easy to start enjoying the many benefits of being involved with athletics, in a range of different roles including competitor, squad member, coach, officiator, classifier or volunteer.

These disability groups are separated into classifications to ensure fair competition. The classification groups are as follows: hearing impairment, vision impairment, physical impairment, transplant impairment, and intellectual impairment.
