ASRAB is pleased to partner with Athletics Canada to offer this exciting opportunity to learn and participate in a variety of track and field events for visually impaired athletes on July 7.
Athletics Canada is the National governing body for Track and Field and includes both the Olympic and Paralympic streams. We have two individuals joining us from Athletics Canada to support this event: Kayla Cornale is the Para-Athletics Development and Talent-Identification Lead across Canada and Billy Reed is the Western Canada Para-Athlete Development Scout. Together they are working to increase awareness regarding para-athletics and help grow the excitement of emerging athletes.
