Visual Impairment (VI) National Classification

  • Athletes with visual impairments may obtain a national classification throughout the year.  To obtain a National VI classification, athletes must have their Ophthalmologist fill out the forms in the link below and return to Bryce Boarman 4 weeks prior to the competition they intend to compete at.  Once the forms are received by Bryce, they are reviewed by a VI Classifier.  They will inform Bryce of the classification outcome and Bryce will notify the athlete.  The classifiers may require additional tests or information which may delay the outcome.  VI athletes must complete this process and be listed in the Classification Database to compete in events.
