The process by which athletes qualify for U.S. teams to major international competitions, such as World Championships, Parapan Am Games and the Paralympic Games, is generally posted 12-18 months before the competition. U.S. Paralympics or the relevant national governing body may use other methods, including invitation, to select teams to other international competitions.
U.S. Paralympics Track and Field is currently accepting applications from Additional Officials and Coaches for the 2015 Parapan American Games Team and the 2015 IPC Athletics World Championships Team. If you would like to be considered for one of these positions, please complete the Application and submit it via email: firstname.lastname@example.org along with all of the required documents (requirements outlined in the application). All applications must be received by January 30, 2015. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Applicants will be notified of the Long List selection by mid-February 2015 and all staff will be officially nominated on or before June 24, 2015. Questions regarding the application process can be directed to Tina Kauffman-Cain: 719-866-2065.
