Para Archery in Canada - Nov 8

Para Archery in Canada

November 8th, 1:00 EST

Archery is a highly adaptable sport accessible to all. This webinar will provide an introduction to the CDN Para program, the people involved, with guidance on key considerations for working with and delivering programming for athletes with a disability. Any archer can apply to be classified through Archery Canada or may be able to be evaluated through a temporary process through your provincial archery association. A classification does not necessarily make an athlete eligible to compete in a Para Archery division, but may make them eligible to compete with an assistive device, in an eligible category to become familiar with the restrictions or assistance that category would bring. This is an opportunity to learn more about this sport which was one of the original sports at the inaugural Paralympic Games in 1960.

This webinar will be led by Archery Canada Para Coordinator, Ryan Van Berkel along with Duncan Crawford, National Para Archery Head Coach and  Nancy Littke , Archery Canada Classification Coordinator.
