Over the weekend of April 24-26, Jeff Jones and Sam Zapatka traveled to the campus of Springfield College in Massachusetts to deliver CDSS (Certified Disability Sports Specialist) training to students, faculty, and community members. This is the second of the six total presentations that will be delivered throughout the United States in 2014. In attendance were 30 Springfield College students, 3 Springfield College Professors, as well as 10 members from the surrounding New England community. Throughout the 2 day course, the participants were engaged in different presentations including adaptive sport equipment, Paralympic history, disability advocacy, and more.
The next CDSS presentation will take place in Huntingdon, Alabama July 18-19.
