Classification exists in sport to support as fair competition as possible amongst students with different disabilities.
By grouping students with similar levels of functional ability into classes for competition, the outcomes of the competition become based on performance rather than on differences in their disabilities.
Students who do not fit into one of these categories may not be able to be classified.
- Physical or functional
- Vision impairment
Classification is coordinated by Athletics SA or Swimming SA and must be organised 60 days prior to competing. See classification by Athletics SA or classification Swimming Australia for further details and how to get classified.
A classification is required to be selected in these SA state teams to competed at School Sport Australia events.
- 12 years and under track and field
