Classification of Rowers
White Rock Rowing (WRR) is proud to have the only Medical and Technical adaptive classifiers in the region. A classification panel consists of a Medical Classifier (MD or Physical Therapist) and a Technical Classifier. WRR is fortunate to have both! Mary Condon, PT, and Sue Ellen Chambers are certified classifiers – They have had the privilege of assessing the sport class for many promising competitive athletes, many of whom are working toward national and international competition.
The classification of adaptive rowers is the assignment of each athlete to a specific category that corresponds to their abilities, allowing there to be a level field in competition. The following are the specific adaptive/para-rowing sports classes:
LTA (Leg, Trunk, and Arms)
TA (Trunk and Arms)
AS (Arms and Shoulders)
