UAE NPC Hosts CPISRA Meeting
The UAE NPC will host a CPISRA Executive Committee meeting for a second time in four years in Dubai on 7 and 8 September 2013.
The UAE NPC invests a significant financial contribution that serves the purpose not only hosting the meeting, but this will also contribute towards development in the region. Craig Carscadden, CPISRA Head of Education and Development will present a Table Cricket workshop, said Koos Engelbrecht, President of CPISRA. Table Cricket is a relative new sport and is mainly for athletes with high support needs.
H.E. Mohamed AlHameli, President of the UAE NPC, said: “My colleagues and myself are aware of the challenges being faced by all the IOSDs in their path of promoting the sport and serving their clients from different disability groups. These challenges are including, but not limited, to the organization of competitions, improving the classification process, developing educational programs and creating strategic relationships with new partners and sponsors.”
CPISRA was responsible for Boccia to becoming an Independent International Federation (IF) in 2013 and is dedicated to make Football 7-a-side also an IF by 2015. This makes CPISRA a leading organisation in the formation of independent sports.
