Para-Athletics Development – Club Throw

Part of the development of Para-athletics in Australia is providing access to equipment for athletes who would normally not have the access or facilities to try a sport or discipline within a sport. As Australia progresses in Para-Athletics through recent strong performances at the most recent IPC World Championships and Paralympics, Athletics Australia has purchased several throwing clubs for the club throw event for the development of athletes in this sport.

Athletics Australia believes that we have a vast array of untapped talent in this event, and would like to give organisations the opportunity to either, develop an athlete with a disability from another sport into a potential athlete in this event, or provide an athlete who currently is an F31, F32, F51 athlete the equipment to train with and develop skills in the discipline.

Our national Para-athletics throws coach will be available to assist coaches and athletes in development of both skills and coaching techniques in this event, and Athletics Australia will be able to supply your state Athletics Member Association with clubs to train and compete with.
