The Bahrain Paralympic Committee (BPC) was established in 2017, following the resolution issued by His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Chairman of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sport, and representative for His Majesty the King for charity work and Youth Affairs, as an official entity to include and support all athletic competencies of People with Impairment.
Following its establishment, the committee has been tasked with fulfilling several important objectives. This includes but is not limited to being dedicated to providing support, incentive and encouragement to young and emerging athletes across the Kingdom, nurturing and developing them by providing year-round sports training for them to compete in various Olympic-style sports. As an advocate of sports, the BPC provides these athletes with increased opportunities to compete in local tournaments and represent Bahrain in regional and international competitions, since the Kingdom’s first international participation in the 1970’s.
The Bahrain Paralympic Committee proudly works side-by-side with the many different organizations that are dedicated to supporting communities with the different impairments faced by our community and athletes in sports through various means.
It is our mission to empower these individuals to feel confident, strong and able to compete and succeed whilst instilling the sense of determination, excitement and inspiration that allows them to achieve their sporting dreams and aspirations.
Our main vision is to be able to grow and expand the Paralympic movement in Bahrain through our recurring events and initiatives that promote inclusivity, sports and what it means to be a Paralympic athlete. We are also aiming to become a platform that represents the struggles, accomplishments and perseverance of our athletes and people with impairment.
