The International Federation for Intellectual Impairment Sport Master List is a list of athletes who can compete at INAS competitions. These are athletes who have completed the athlete eligibility check and can be considered to compete.
An athlete who wants to compete at a high level must first contact their national INAS Member organisation. They will then take them through the application and evidence process. This is then sent to the INAS Eligibility Committee.
There are two levels of eligibility – national and international. The Member organisation will help athletes with which level they should be assessed for.
INAS recently launched a trial of additional eligibility groups in INAS competitions. These are for athletes with significant additional impairment – for athletes with an intellectual disability and a further significant impairment. Initially this will be limited to athletes with Down’s syndrome. The second group is for athletes with autism.
