PARALYMPIAN SEARCH

Thursday, September 6, 2018

PARALYMPIAN SEARCH is a one-day athlete identification event designed to test participant aptitudes to excel in various Paralympic sports, and maybe one day represent Canada at the Paralympic Games.

The event also welcomes current or former athletes from all levels aiming to transfer into a new Paralympic sport or discover a new sport that can complement their main discipline.

Each participant goes through a set of basic physical tests conducted by national team coaches and other experts. During this event, you will also get to meet current Paralympic athletes and alumni from various sports who will be sharing their experience and answering your questions.

Following participation in PARALYMPIAN SEARCH, participants may be selected for a local club, provincial or national development program designed to propel athletes from their developmental stages to a Paralympic podium. Additionally, all participants will receive information on how to get started in the sports of their choice.
