Cerebral Palsy Sport offer a range of opportunities for swimmers with cerebral palsy from introductory sessions for new swimmers through to specialist coaching and competitive galas, tailored awareness and education courses.
Our Development Galas are for swimmers who have some experience of the aquatic environment. We operate a programme of Galas that offer an excellent introduction to competitive swimming. They are friendly, supportive and realistic with a starter, timekeepers, heats and staggered timed finals. If necessary a swimmer can be accompanied by a parent or enabler – and swimming aids are permitted.
The National Championships are a friendly and competitive event. They take place annually in Nottingham and caters for the needs of all active cerebral palsy swimmers from club through to elite levels of ability. The Championships are held using British Swimming classification – but cerebral palsy swimmers without classification may take part as guests if space allows.
