Albion Park Little Athletics Club aims to provide an inclusive environment in which barriers to involvement are removed and all people with a disability feel welcome and comfortable to participate. People with a disability become involved in sport for exactly the same reasons as their able-bodied peers: - Fun Social contact Fitness Self esteem Increased skills The term multi-class is used in Little Athletics as all classifications (disabilities) compete together and are scored by classification upon completion of their event. Multiclass athletics includes a range of disabilities including physical, hearing, vision and intellectual impairment. These children are then classified into categories to make a fair system for competition. More information can be found at www.athletics.com.au/para-athletics. At a local level, multiclass athletes can access regular athletic events at Albion Park Little Athletics on a Friday night starting at 5:30pm. These athletes will follow a similar program to their peers, with a dedicated coordinator tailoring the program specifically for multiclass athletes. The committee at APLAC are very supportive in adapting activities at club level to ensure equal participation opportunities for these athletes. In addition to our Friday club nights, competitions in 2018/19 with events for multi-class athletes include: Albion Park Carnival, Croome Rd on October 28th 2018. Zone Championships, St Georges Basin on December 1st and 2nd 2018. Regionals Championships, Griffith on February 9th and 10th 2019. State Track and Field Championships, Sydney Olympic Park, Homebush in March 2019.
