Through grant funding provided by U.S. Paralympics, BlazeSports has recently expanded their programs available to disabled veterans and active duty service members by introducing 2 new sports.
Cycling is now being offered every Tuesday at Panola Mountain State Park. There are a range of cycles to try including hand cycles and recumbent cycles. Veterans experience regular physical exercise while enjoying the benefits of the outdoor lifestyle in the park, located near Stockbridge.
Archery is also new to the program and takes place on Friday afternoons at the Archery Learning Center in Snellville. Participants receive expert instruction from Level IV USA archery instructor Ginger Hopwood.
In addition to these new activities, bowling continues as a popular pursuit at Suburban Lanes in Decatur. The program is held each week on a Thursday and are currently working towards their 1st tournament in December.
Swimming with coach Fred Lamback continues as a regular program. Veterans and injured active duty members can work with coach Fred on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 12pm—1:30pm at Fort Gordon.
For more information about any of our veteran programs or to register to join a program please contact Jeff Jones on 404-270-2036 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
