Inas delivers Central Americas workshop

Over the last two days, Inas has been meeting with NPC’s from across the Central Americas area to foster relationships and improve understanding of the athlete eligibility process.

Representatives from a number of NPC’s including hosts Costa Rica, Guatemala, El Salvador, Panama and Nicaragua participated in the workshop and it is hoped to see greater opportunities for athletes with intellectual disabilities developing across the region in the future.

Nick Parr, Inas Executive Director talked about Inas’ aims for the future, following the recent publication of its new four year strategic plan, whilst Professor Jan Burns, Inas Head of Eligibility, talked about the process of eligibility.

The workshop followed the conclusion of the 2013 Central American Para-Games in San Jose, Costa Rica and was facilitated by Aimee Poyo – NPC Relations Co-Ordinator for the International Paralympic Committee.
