Abilympics WA would like to invite expressions of interest from people with disabilities who would like to compete for their State and Country in future Abilympics events. It is hoped that a large team of potential medal winners will participate with us.
We take a team of health professionals who are able to assist in activities of daily living. Health professionals include a physiotherapist, nurses and several people who will assist with transfers etc as required.
Abilympics West Australia Association Inc greatly financially assist participants, although we do undertake some fundraising and expect participants to meet their own passport and insurance costs. Most meals are provided at the venue and breakfasts are included with hotel fees which are met by Abilympics. The amount of spending money is up to the individual and self funded.
These are the current workskill events that Abilympics WA would love for you to compete in and represent your home country of Australia with the potential to win medals
Professional Skill Competitions – Occupational Skills
Rules & Reguations
A limit is set on the maximum number of contestants for each of the categories.
The maximum number of contestants in each contest is nominally set at two per country. If demand is high, the Organizing Committee reserves the right to vary this maximum, in which case ample prior notice is given.
If there is sufficient international interest other contest activities may be considered.
Each country is responsible for its choice of contestants.
The judging panel for each contest will consist of a panel of at least 3 experts.
The assessment criteria is based solely on the finished product measured against commercial standards. No consideration will be made towards the degree of disability of the contestants, however, special awards will be made relating to the level of disability and efforts made.
Standard tools will be supplied if required. The use of approved aids will be accepted by contestants as long as the aids are intended to assist the contestants to carry out the task in a normal way and are not of a highly sophisticated or specialized type to give an unfair advantage to the contestants. It is, therefore, a requirement for all contestants to inform the Organizing Committee of the type of aids they will be using, if any, apart from the normal set of tools required and designated in order to carry out the task.
Who is eligible to apply to be a competitor?
Any person with a disability who has a skill in the categories being offered for competition by the host country for that particular International Abilympics competition. There is a $10.00 fee to register your West Australian membership. See our FAQ’s for more information.
