Have your student provisionally classified. Refer to the Paralympics New Zealand website www.paralympics.org.nz for instructions and forms.
Record the times and distances of the disabled athlete as you would all other swimmers for the 3 stroke medley and 400m freestyle.
Use the student’s provisional classification to identify the correct adjusted standards for that student.
Refer to the following websites: Paralympics New Zealand (www.paralympics.org.nz), Swimming New Zealand (www.swimming.org.nz) or the Halberg Trust (www.halberg.co.nz) or contact your Sport Opportunity Advisor based at your local Regional Sports Trust for a copy of the adjusted standard.
Use the adjusted standard (below) to assess the disabled swimmer as you would all other athletes to determine if they have achieved: Achievement, Merit or Excellence.
Follow same steps as for all other students
