Cycling South Australia (CSA) has launched Para Come & Try sessions with an aim of providing track cycling opportunities to enthusiasts who are vision impaired, amputees, living with cerebral palsy or similar neurological conditions (e.g. multiple sclerosis or acquired brain injury).

CSA understands the challenges faced by para-athletes and our accredited coaches and pilots led by Loz Shaw are here to ensure para-participants are provided with all the necessary tools and support for a smooth and enjoyable experience at Hanson Reserve’s outdoor velodrome.

 

“My role is to help people living with a disability transfer from a club level or recreational rider to a state or national level para-athlete with a view on international competitions.

SASI has an amazing program with many of our South Australian athletes looking to follow in the footsteps of former Paralympic gold medal winners Felicity Johnson and the late Kieran Modra.”

-        Loz Shaw (Head Coach, SASI Paracycling Program)

 

CSA’s vision is to provide potential participants with a broad range of options  and the Para Come & Try sessions could be a perfect pathway for you to get involved in track cycling with the goal of exercising, honing your bike skills and getting involved in social sport around like-minded people.

The Para C&T sessions will also provide you with a pathway to enable participants to break barriers, defy odds, and represent Australia at the highest level - The Paralympic Games!

CSA’s goal of facilitating and delivering these sessions is in line with Paralympics Australia’s to help Australians with disabilities participate in sport. CSA will be organizing a total of four sessions (20/09, 17/10, 7/11 & 5/12) at Hanson Reserve (in Woodville, Adelaide) between 2 PM – 4 PM.
