Determination of Athletes to undergo Classification Evaluation

UCO will be required to provide a list of athletes entered into the competition (by sport formulti-sport events) to U.S. Paralympics a minimum of three (3) weeks prior to the start of thecompetition. An entry cutoff date must will stipulated in the published competition information. U.S. Paralympics in consultation with the UCO shall determine if classification evaluation scheduling is feasible or to be offered to athletes who submit late entries.

UCO in consultation with U.S. Paralympics will develop the classification timetable for the competition by comparing the entrant list for the sport to the National Sport Classification Database and any requests for classification received by the LOC in conjunction with competition entries. U.S. Paralympics will approve the final classification timetable (by sport for multi-sport events) and it will be the responsibility of UCO to communicate any pertinent classification information and the timetable schedule to athletes, parents, coaches and teams as relevant.
