2017 National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic
March 26 @ 8:00 am - March 31 @ 5:00 pm
The National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic is the largest rehabilitative program of its kind in the world today. It utilizes adapted physical activities as well as workshops and educational sessions to aid in the rehabilitation of of severely disabled Veterans. Activities such as Alpine and Nordic skiing, snowmobiling, scuba diving, fly fishing, wheelchair golf, wheelchair self defense, rock wall climbing, sled hockey, trap shooting, blues harmonica instruction, dog sledding, goal ball for the visually impaired, wheelchair fencing, and amputee volleyball are a small portion of the adaptive activities that have been held over the past 30 years. The clinic targets disabled Veterans with spinal cord injuries, amputations, neurological disorders, and visual impairments. The winter sports clinic experience improves physical well being, mental health, and self esteem, thereby enabling Veterans with profound disabilities to re-discover life after disability. The NDVWSC will be held in Snowmass, Colorado on March 26th-31st.
