COME AND TRY PARALYMPIC TRACK AND FIELD!

BlazeSports America and the United States Paralympic Committee (USOC) are hosting a free “Gateway to Gold” event to introduce coaches and individuals with physical disabilities, including youth, adults and military veterans to the Paralympic Track and Field. As part of the event, participants will learn technique, safety, and a variety of skills to help determine their aptitude for Paralympic Track and Field and possibly identify potential future U.S. Paralympic athletes!

If you have a physical disability and have never tried track and field before this a great place to start! Top USA coaches will provide the coaching and adapted track and field equipment is available.
