Little Athletics develops children of ALL abilities, providing a warm and inclusive environment for all young people to be their best.
At Knox LAC our activities and events are designed to be inclusive and adaptable to all. We aim to provide an inclusive environment in which barriers to involvement are removed and all people with a disability feel welcome and comfortable to participate.
At Knox we have had a long association with little athletes with a disability participating at our centre.
At Knox LAC, athletes with a disability will often be fully integrated into the standard program. We are more than happy to discuss whether modifications need to or can be made to suit the requirements of your child. The extent of the modifications will depend on the athlete’s level of impairment or disability. Some athletes may only require minor modifications, others may require extensive modifications to become involved. Modifications may also be made in view of phasing them out over time.
If you have any questions regarding your child and competing at Knox LAC with a disability, please contact our Centre Secretary and we will put in contact with our Disabilty/Multiclass Coordinator.
