Program description

The WA Paras football program provides a pathway for people with varying ability and goals to play football.

CP Football is a 7-a-side version of the game that has minor modifications allowing for a fast paced and competitive game. There is no offside rule in CP Football and there are changes to the throw-ins, allowing players to roll the ball into play.

State and National teams for CP Football, provide a pathway for those interested in playing at a competitive level.

Players aiming to represent their state or country are required to be classified from FT1 – FT3, with a combination of classifications required on the pitch during matches. The WA Paras coaches and staff can assist any athletes wanting to be classified.
