Athlete Classification

Athletes are classified into the following categories as they compete at matches and earn Classification Points based on their final position within the Division in which they compete. The system has been designed as a self-leveling system that assists new athletes in getting into the sport, and balances out through skills progression.
(See bottom of this page for further details).
