Classification has the aim to ensure that the best athlete (most skilled, fit and tactical) wins (not the athlete with the lowest level of impairment).

Classification determines who can compete in the sport and groups these athletes based on the impact their impairment has on the key activities of the sport. Classification also includes all the policies and procedures, rules and regulations.

Athlete evaluation is the process that an athlete undergoes to be allocated a sport class and sport class status.

IPCH Classifiers are trained during specifics courses after which they get an IPCH Licence, they usually are medical doctors, physiotherapists, experts in the sport and biomechanics.

Being involved in classification of national level athletes is a good way to be introduced in classification.
