Where can I take part

Athletics and CP Sport

From Athletics Start days through to our Athletics Series, Cerebral Palsy Sport offer a range of opportunities for athletes with cerebral palsy. 

Our competitive programme starts from 11-year-olds and there is no upper age limit. Events include a variety of track and field disciplines with age appropriate throwing equipment and weights being used. 

We also work closely with England Athletics and other partners to ensure good quality provision exists locally by supporting coaches in mainstream clubs in understanding what a CP athlete requires to ensure a positive experience.
