First announcement

To the National Paralympic Committees and the National Para Dance Sport Federations

Dear friends of the Para Dance Sport community,

We have the pleasure to invite you all to the 2017 World Para Dance Sport Championships, taking place for the first time in Belgium. During three successful editions of the IPC-approved Open Belgian, we were able to form a competent and motivated team and we feel ready to host the world championships in the city of Malle on 21 -22 October 2017.

Our first aim is to offer to the athletes, coaches, staff and team leaders in Para Dance Sport an efficient organization so that they can focus on their sportive performance. Therefore we would like to provide you already with the information related to the Championships, so the travel preparations and accommodation arrangements can be smoothly done.

It is possible to book accommodation, meals and transport for accredited and not-accredited people on the same booking form. Keep in mind that the not-accredited people have to contribute to the cost of transport. All payments have to be done by bank transfer before 1 September.
In order to avoid any mistakes, we kindly ask you to fill in the documents by computer before sending them to the competition secretariat

Be aware that the name of the airport “Brussels South” is rather confusing. This airport is located nearby the city of Charleroi, more than two hours driving from the city of Malle, passing by Brussels and Antwerp. Long delays and traffic jams are expected and the LOC has decided not to provide transportation from this airport. Feel free to contact the LOC for any further queries.

The entry by number will be opened from 7 to 18 August 2017. The entry by name will be opened on 21 August and the absolute deadline for entries is the 1st of September. As usual, the entries for athletes and staff have to be done by the NPC via the IPC SDMS system. Please take notice of the deadlines as sanction fees shall be applied.

We also draw your attention to the changes in the regulations from the 6th of February ( and in particular to the duration of the freestyle for single and combi. The new times will be applied during the world championships.
