Important: U.S. Paralympics has updated the National Policies and Procedures and a few changes were made that went into effect in January that will affect your events National classification.  National classification appointments are reserved for U.S. citizens only.  If you are a citizen of another country and you have never undergone classification evaluation you must first obtain proof of citizenship in the U.S. before you will be scheduled for classification evaluation by a U.S. National classification panel.

 

The Tri-State Wheelchair and Ambulatory Games will be providing National classification in track and field.  In order to participate at the games, you must be classified in each sport you wish to compete in.  If you have not been classified you will be notified of your classification time.  Classifications will be held on Friday, May 26 (During the afternoon/evening) and Saturday, May 27(During the morning) for those competing in track, field and archery events. If an athlete is not a U.S. Citizen the athlete will go through the classification process but he or she will be given a temporary classification to compete at the Tri-State Wheelchair and Ambulatory Games.  Please review the Classification section in the Games Packet very carefully in order to not miss any deadlines regarding the required classification paperwork and documentation.
