What are the classes?
Class FT5: Players with diplegia (both legs) or dystonia (legs affected more than arms) compete in this class. FT5 players have the greatest difficulty moving around the field of all the football classes.
Class FT6: Players in this class have athetosis or ataxia that affects all four limbs.
Class FT7: Players with hemiplegia (ie who are affected on one side of body) compete in this class.
Class FT8: Players with mild spasticity, athetosis, ataxia or dystonia, that meet minimal disability criteria. FT8 players have the least difficulty in moving around the field.
