CPISRA provides and promotes opportunities for recreational sport and activity, develops grassroots adaptive sport and provides platforms for regional and international competitive and elite sport.
CPISRA has been instrumental in developing and promoting adaptive sports for people with Cerebral Palsy and related conditions. Boccia was the first sport developed by CPISRA and it provided a much needed competitive sport pathway for people with severe impairment. Boccia made it’s Paralympic debut in 1984, and in 2013 the Boccia International Sports Federation (BisFed) became independent to CPISRA to govern the sport.
The development of CP Football has allowed individuals with Cerebral Palsy to take part in the World’s most popular sport. CP Football also debuted at the Paralympic games in 1984, and the International Federation of Cerebral Palsy Football (IFCPF) became independent to CPISRA in 2015.
Currently, CPISRA is developing RaceRunning, Wheelchair Slalom and Frame Football. Many other sports are available for people with Cerebral Palsy
