The purpose of the FIPFA Classification System is to minimise the impact of impairment on the outcome of competition,
therefore the athletes who succeed in competition do so on the basis of their sporting ability.
To achieve this purpose, athletes are evaluated and put into sport classes according to the extent of activity limitation resulting from their impairment.
More specifically, this System has a dual purpose:
- Determine Eligibility to Compete
- Group Athletes for Competition
