Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra became a Paralympic Sport Club in 2008. Thanks to the efforts of Paralympic Program Coordinator Maggie Palchak, our Paralympic Sport programing has been steadily increasing ever since.
As a Paralympic Sport Club we are dedicated to increasing awareness of Paralympic Sports AND to bring athletes into the “Paralympic Pipeline.”
The Paralympic Games immediately follow the Olympic Games. They are an elite level international competition for athletes with physical and/or visual disabilities hosted in the same venue as the Olympic Games.
