We require a minimum of 6 participants to arrange the paraschool and the maximum number of participants is set to 12 people. Norwegian athletes will be given priority if the attendance exceeds the maximum number of persons.
The IBFS regulation sets as the minimum requirement that you can transfer yourself in/out of the bobsled on your own without any help. It also requires good arm and finger function. If you are in doubt if you have insufficient function in arms/fingers, mark the option for «…conversation with our physiotherapist» in the registration form and our physiotherapist will contact you for a few clarifications. The same if you have a known weakness in the skeletal/have osteoporosis. Then you are initially disqualified from being able to perform this sport/attend the paraschool, but ask our physiotherapist to contact you to clarify.
Equipment and Clothing
– Helmet. EC approved helmet. Flip-front is not allowed used. (Helmets can be borrowed at the track if you do not own or manage to borrow one).
– Moto-cross protection vest, with back/spine protection, is recommended for those who want a little more padding and protection of course. Not necessary, but can be smart to use.
– Thin gloves while driving, possibly without gloves for those who prefer it. This to have good contact with the D-rings (control).
– Thin windproof fleece jacket or sweater while driving. Ideally without hood and other things that can slow down the pace.
– Shoes of type; boxing/motorsport shoes are recommended because it makes it easier to get in/out of the bobsled.
– Important!!! Use the cushion from your wheelchair or other pressure relief cushion to prevent pressure sores from driving.
– Otherwise, warm winter clothes and a hat because it is cold to wait outside in the cold.
