Registration Now Open for National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic

Registration is open for The National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic, an event like no other, uniquely designed to teach recently-injured Veterans how to surf, kayak, sail, cycle and enjoy other sports.

The 4th National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic, sponsored by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), will be held September 18 - 23 in San Diego.

The rehabilitative clinic introduces Veterans to adaptive kayaking, sailing, track and field, cycling and surfing, using venues throughout the San Diego area, including the U.S. Olympic Training Center. At the week-long event, participants will also have the chance to bond with fellow Veterans with disabilities and work together to overcome challenges.

Participation is open to military Veterans who are eligible for VA medical care and have orthopedic amputations, traumatic brain injuries, burn injuries, psychological trauma, certain neurological conditions, visual impairment, spinal cord injuries or other injuries.

If you know someone who could benefit from this life-changing event, visit the event website www.summersportsclinic.va.gov to obtain more information. Change a Veteran’s life, tell them about the National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic.
