Classification process

Classification is the cornerstone for Para and Multi Class Swimming. Determining if you have an eligible physical or intellectual impairment is a key first step. Once classified, a swimmer with disability is eligible to compete in Multi Class races according to their classification and National Sport Class Status, which determines the level of competition the swimmer may compete in (i.e. club, regional, state or national level meets).

Multi Class Swimming – multi class swimming refers to the competition structure for swimmers with a disability. It allows for swimmers to compete in a fair environment by grouping them according to their classification.
