It is a joy to see the cheers and competitive spirits flowing as athletes tackle hills or obstacle courses while learning the challenges and thrill of their sport of choice. World-class coaches from across the country including US Paralympic medalists and former US Olympic team members guided their progress.
We had a few challenges with weather this year, from flights being turned around in heavy storms to the Mammoth Lakes Biathlon being cancelled for the first time ever due to lack of snow. None of this stopped our camps or dampened our athletes’ determination and enthusiasm for Paralympic Sport. Those who were turned around due to weather, called to ask how soon they could return to train with us. Athletes in the Biathlon Camp were challenged by more competitive opportunities than usual as our coaches reached creative heights in designing alternative racing and training situations during this camp.
We are all looking forward to an equally successful summer of Parlaympic sport training opportunities. Watch our calendar for opportunities to participate in these fun events!
