Intro days give you a taste of what real athletics training is all about and assist you to find a local club and coach for ongoing regular training and competition - be the best you can be!
- ADD TO CALENDAR
The Para-Athletics program is designed to give disabled children and adults parallel opportunities to their non-disabled peers. The intro days give you a taste of the sport, if you like it, we will then help find you a local coach and get you started. There are a series of PS competitions throughout the summer to test yourself and see the improvements you've made through regular training. Athletics is all about you and reaching your potential through hard work, competition and the rewards of improved performances.
