IWRF Classification article published in Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly
Viola Altmann, IWRF Level IV Classifier has had another article published about classification in wheelchair rugby, this time in Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly.
"I think the article will be interesting to read by athletes and stakeholders, because it is about the survey that formed the basis of the research program to improve classification, which we have been working on for quite a few years now" stated Altmann.
The article is co-written by Anne Hart, IWRF Level IV Classifier and IPC Classification Committee Chair, and is the result of several years of combined study and research.
As an athlete driven federation, the IWRF has always striven to meet the requests of its membership. And while classification can sometimes be controversial, the IWRF is proud of the ongoing work that is done by its Classification Committee to help assure members are involved and informed, and that the federation remains compliant with the IPC Classification Code.
Well done Viola and Anne! A short excerpt from the article is below for your review. If you would like access to the full article, please contact Viola at for more information.
