Welcome to SASAPD

Since its establishment in 1962 SASAPD has gone through a full circle of revolution

and change. We continue to re-evaluate our position and our role in the ever changes

structures of sport in South Africa and throughout the world. The focus of the organisation is to

develop and promote the sporting codes offered at Paralympic level for athletes with physical

disabilities, visual impairment and blindness. We distinctly offer pathways through our affiliations

with international bodies such as IBSA, IWAS and CPISRA and our annual Nedbank National

Championships for Physically Disabled, as recognised steps towards Paralympic Games

qualification across a variety of sports We work and are an affiliate member of SASCOC as well

as being associated members of a number of other national sporting federations.
