What is Para Athletics?

Para athletics, also known as track and field is the largest competition at the Paralympic Games. Events are available for individuals with physical disabilities (both wheelchair and standing), athletes with visual impairments and intellectual disabilities. Contested events are held in track racing, throwing, marathon and pentathlon.

Athletics NS has embraced the integration of para-athletics into the sport of track and field in Nova Scotia.  They are always looking for interested/talented individuals to try their sport, and offer try it programs, coaching, training and competitive opportunities for all.
