Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra became a Paralympic Sport Club in 2008. Thanks to the efforts of Program Director Maggie Palchak, our Paralympic Sport programming 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.
DSES provides personalized coaching all year long in a variety of Paralympic sports including skiing, snowboarding, biathlon, and cycling. For athletes looking to develop their skills in specific sports or pursue future racing goals, DSES offers four winter sports camps designed to focus on personal goals and competitive achievement. We also offer athlete support for local competitions including Mammoth Half Marathon, June Lake Triathlon, and Mammoth Gran Fondo.
