Fairfax 2015 Receives Final Approval For Sports Program
Last week the Planning Team for the Fairfax 2015 World Police & Fire Games hosted meetings with the WPFG Federation. One of the main purposes of these talks is to obtain approval for planned venues, sports program, schedules as well as the overall plan for the Games.
Fairfax 2015 has been working extremely hard over the past 10 months on a number of changes to improve the athlete experience. Venues have been upgraded, changes to the sports program and a robust accommodations plan with superior athlete benefits.
Your 2015 Planning Team is pleased to announce the following WPFG Federation approved sports updates:
SPORTS GROUPINGS: Adjustments will be made to the website ( http://fairfax2015.com ) to display the sports reflective of the WPFG Registration System. As a result, our sports number will be adjusted to 61 instead of the previously mentioned 40. Most of the sports will remain grouped in the social network area due to the cross-competitive nature of the events.
SPORTS TITLES: Several sports will be renamed. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will be listed as Submission Grappling. This new sport for the WPFG will be hosted by both the 2015 and 2017 Games. Other sports will be relabeled for consistency.
PROGRAM CHANGE: Earlier this year a review was performed of the sports program to create a final list to present the Federation. As a result, the previously announced sports program with the addition of Baseball has been approved. No other changes to the sports program will be made from this point forward. The final sports list for Fairfax 2015 World Police & Fire Games is as follows:
|OPEN WATER SWIM|
|PISTOL CENTER FIRE|
|PISTOL POLICE ACTION|
|PISTOL POLICE COMBAT|
|POLICE SERVICE DOGS|
|RIFLE LARGE BORE|
|RIFLE SMALL BORE|
|TAE KWON DO|
|TOUGHEST COMPETITOR ALIVE|
|TRACK & FIELD|
|TUG OF WAR|
