National Team Competitions

All World Para Athletics (WPA) Approved events can be found by visiting the by the WPA Competition Calendar.

Athletes who hold a current IPC Athletics License must compete at a WPA approved competition for results to count for the WPA ranking list(s), WPA world and regional record applications, U.S. Paralympics Track & Field National Team status and WPA international competition qualification (i.e., Parapan American Games, world championships, Paralympic Games, etc.).

Competitions can be approved in one of two ways:

  • World Para Athletics Approved Events Form
  • WPA Approved International and National Competitions are competitions for athletes with a disability (or where these events form part of a wider program). Local Organizing Committees/Event Directors must complete this application and submit the required supporting documentation to U.S. Paralympics at least four months in advance of the scheduled competition start date. Upon approval of the competition, a WPA Technical Delegate will be appointed by WPA.
