- WPA Approved International and National Competitions are competitions for athletes with a disability (or where these events form part of a wider program). Local Organizing Committees/Event Directors must complete this application and submit the required supporting documentation to U.S. Paralympics at least four months in advance of the scheduled competition start date. Upon approval of the competition, a WPA Technical Delegate will be appointed by WPA.
