Athletics

Visually impaired athletes compete in most track events (ex. 100m to the Marathon) and in most field events (ex. Shot Put, Discus, Javelin, High Jump, Long Jump and Pentathlon). Athletics is a very popular program and meets are held regularly across the province. These local and regional competitions are the building blocks to gaining recognition as an athlete and later success in Provincial Games and National Championships. Athletics is one of the main events at the Paralympics.

Providing opportunities to have fun, participate and compete.
