Adaptive Sports

 

This program motivates, encourages and sustains participation and competition in adaptive sports among disabled Veterans and members of the Armed Forces through partnerships with VA clinical personnel as well as national and community-based adaptive sports programs.

The Grants for Adaptive Sports Programs for disabled Veterans and Members of the Armed Forces (ASG Program) provides grant funding to organizations to increase and expand the quantity and quality of adaptive sport activities disabled Veterans and members of the Armed Forces have to participate in physical activity within their home communities, as well as more advanced Paralympic and adaptive sport programs at the regional and national levels.

Warrior Games

The DoD Warrior Games feature eight sporting events with approximately 200 athletes representing teams from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, U.S. Special Operations Command and British Armed Forces. Adaptive sports and athletic reconditioning activities play a fundamental role in the recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration of our service members. The events of the 2015 Department of Defense Warrior Games embody the spirit of the U.S. and British Armed Forces, and celebrate the triumphs, personal courage and of our wounded, ill and injured service members.

Veteran Athlete Training Allowance

The U.S. Olympic Committee supports Paralympic-eligible military veterans in their efforts to represent the USA at the Paralympic Games and other international competitions. Veterans who demonstrate exceptional sport skills and the commitment necessary to pursue elite-level competition are given guidance on securing the training, support, and coaching needed to qualify for Team USA and achieve their Paralympic dreams. Through a partnership with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, the VA Paralympic Program Office helps to provide a monthly assistance allowance for disabled Veterans of the Armed Forces, as authorized by section 703 of the Veterans’ Benefits Improvement Act of 2008.

Through the program, the VA will pay a monthly allowance to a Veteran with a service-connected or non-service-connected disability if the Veteran meets the minimum military standard or any higher standard (i.e. Emerging, Talent Pool, National Team) in his/her respective sport at a recognized competition. Adaptive sports provide wounded, injured and ill service members the opportunity to discover their abilities despite their disabilities. Beginning with introductory sports camps, participants have the opportunity to learn about and compete in recreational and paralympic-style sports. The Navy Safe Harbor Foundation is proud to provide financial support to Sailors and Coast Guardsmen participating in adaptive athletic camps and competitive events:

  • Travel Expenses
  • Specialized athletic equipment
  • Volunteer support
  • Public awareness

Find an official Paralympic Sports Club

Through partnerships with the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, the USOC Paralympic Military Program has impacted the lives of thousands of injured military personnel and veterans. Service members and veterans looking to get active in sports in their communities can visit FindaClub.USParalympics.org to locate a program in their area. Most people with physical or visual disabilities don’t have the chance to participate in regular sports activities. By partnering with community and national organizations across the country, U.S. Paralympics is working hard to expand these opportunities. Starting with official Paralympic Sport Clubs, a network made of hundreds of community-based programs, our reach is growing and the goal is to have 250 clubs in American cities by 2012.

NRA Disabled Shooting Services Program

Offering services that enable thousands of Americans with physical disabilities to enjoy a variety of shooting activities, including competitive events and hunting. Competitors with physical disabilities, who are unable to achieve the required shooting positions or use special adaptive equipment, are required to apply for a medical waiver. The medical waiver application is fairly simple and consists of two forms. The NRA Disabled Shooting Service Program also provides links to state websites for hunting and fishing for disabled veterans. Many individuals with disabilities are able to compete by using equipment that has been specially adapted to provide assistance. Adaptive equipment does not give the shooter an edge but merely provides assistance for individuals who are not capable of certain physical activities such as supporting the weight of a rifle or squeezing a trigger. The most common pieces of equipment are rifle stands and power triggers.
