• It is necessary for Registration to state clearly that the athlete has Down syndrome either:


         ~ Down syndrome Trisomy 21

         ~ Down syndrome Mosaic


  • The most accurate way to provide this evidence is a blood test for Cytogenetic Analysis.
  • If any other evidence is presented which in the opinion of our Medical Advisory Group is not conclusive, SU-DS retains the right to request the athlete to submit to a Cytogenetic Analysis.
  • All evidence including the test for Cytogenetic Assessment is to be sent to SU-DS, who will make a decision regarding the status of the athlete.
  • Any costs involved in the analysis are the responsibility of the athlete.
  • When completing the Registration Form there are Guidelines available to download also.

  • You are strongly advised to read the Guidelines carefully.
