Player Evaluation for Players with Review Transition
All internationally classified players who had their Eligible Impairment verified and were assessed as eligible prior to 1 October 2021 are required to undergo Stage 2 and Stage 3 of the new Player Evaluation Process. This is to ensure all players meet the new Minimum Impairment Criteria.
The eligible players can be found on the Classification Master List and have been allocated the sport class status Review Transition (RT) until it is confirmed whether they meet the MIC. For any of these players who do not meet the new MIC, there is a transition provision that will be applicable between 1 October 2021 – 30 June 2023, which means they can continue to play wheelchair basketball at official IWBF international competitions until 30 June 2023 but after this date, they will no longer be eligible to compete. (The transition provision has been extended from the original set date due to the postponement of the 2022 World Championships)
Below is the flowchart of how Player Evaluation will work for Players with sport class status Review Transition. These Players do not need to undergo Stage 1 as this has already been completed.
