Ottawa, ON, Aug. 23, 2017 – Equestrian Canada (EC) is pleased to announce that a Para-Equestrian Classification Hub will be hosted in Newmarket, ON on Sept. 6, 2017.
What: Para-Equestrian Classification Hub
When: Sept. 6, 2017
Where: Holiday Inn Express & Suites Newmarket – 100 Pony Dr., Newmarket, ON L3Y 7B6
Cost: $100
Registration Deadline: Aug. 30, 2017
Classification is available to athletes who are actively competing at the EC Bronze level and are ready to progress to Silver and Gold. Athletes must have a recognized medical condition resulting in an impairment that can be measured objectively.
Please note, not all athletes who have an impairment are eligible for classification. For example, a symptom such as lax ligaments, general pain, or an impairment that changes from day-to-day is not classifiable. In addition, riders must have more than a 15% loss of power, range or coordination in any limb or the trunk to be eligible for classification.
Athletes are responsible for their own travel costs, and must bring one person with them into the classification session. It is strongly recommended that they bring their coach if they are available, so any compensating aids can be discussed with the classifier.
Those interested in participating in the Classification Hub are encouraged to request a classification package. The package must be completed by the athlete, as well as their coach and medical doctor, and returned to EC no later than Aug. 30, 2017. To request a package, contact:
Jamie-Ann Goodfellow
Coordinator, Para-Equestrian
1-866-282-8395 x 146
The Classification Advisory Group will review the documentation and the athlete will be notified if they are eligible for classification.
The next opportunity for athletes to receive classification in Ontario will be in 2018.
