We are a team of active disabled veterans
dedicated to taking down the barriers to an
active and engaged lifestyle, and we want to
help you find your inner athlete, answer your
training questions, and get you involved in the
sports that you’ll enjoy the most.
As one of our members, we’ll also help you
get to some exciting and inspiring sporting events
like the National Veterans Wheelchair Games,the
National Disabled Veterans Winter SportsClinic, or
even the National Veterans Golden AgeGames.
Our team is also dedicated to teaching the
public about what we CAN do, not just what we can’t.
We have the same drive and dreams as
anyone! And we especially enjoy passing our
enthusiasm on to children with disabilities,
showing them that they can play baseball and soccer,
swim, bike, and race, too.
