SIGN UP

Leading into the Canterbury School Sports, we encourage students to get involved at their own school sports (and zone’s if appropriate). This may mean disabled students competing alongside their able-bodied peers at school sports (or sometimes on their own). However, this is a great way to gain some racing experience and demonstrate to your school while you should be racing at Canterbury School Sports.

Below is a list of upcoming events (please note some dates may change). If you are interested in competing, please be proactive and talk with you school as they may also not be aware that there are opportunities available for disabled students. We are also working on promoting that within schools.

CANTERBURY SCHOOL SPORTS

Did you know their are opportunities for disabled students to compete in school sports?
ParaFed Canterbury, in partnership with the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation, are encouraging more disabled students to compete in their school sports.

There are four sports (athletics, cross country, boccia and swimming) that currently offer disability categories in their Canterbury School Sports. This is at secondary, intermediate and primary schools (usually Year 5 & above).
