Join now and become a part of our CPSARA community today!
You can join as an athlete, family member, health professional or a classifier.

CPSARA provides access to a Mentor Program for athletes and parents!
Our Athlete Mentor Program is run by athletes for athletes. The aim of this program is to utilise knowledge from experienced athletes to support new and 'up and coming' athletes to excel in their chosen sport.
Our Parent Mentor Program focuses on connecting new para sports parents to parents who have been in their sports for a number of years through their child's participation.
MEMBER of the month
My name is Kerry West and I am a physiotherapist and have worked with children with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities for over 20 years.
Having been very involved in sport as a young person myself I have always been passionate about helping the children I see through my work become involved in sport and have often struggled to find suitable opportunities and to know what sports are available.
Over the last 10+ years I have been more personally involved in disability sport as my daughter has CP and competes in athletics in the throwing events. I am also involved in swimming as a medical classifier. It is great to see many young children with CP come through the classification process and participate in swimming through school and other pathways.
I joined the CPSARA committee so that I can contribute to sharing information about sporting opportunities with more children and families, as well as increase awareness amongst health professionals especially physios.
