The United States Association of Blind Athletes (USABA) is pleased to host a Tandem Cycling Development Camp for riders who are blind and visually impaired at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, May 4-11, 2015. The camp is open to both male and female participants and military Veterans and Active Duty Service Members are strongly encouraged to apply. Approved military athletes are fully funded to the camp.  Program fees for non-military athletes will be no more than $315 and includes all components of the camp (accommodations, ground transportation, meals, equipment, training, etc.).  Riders must possess the fitness and equipment necessary to make it through the week-long cycling camp.  This program was funded in part by a grant by the United States Department of Veteran Affairs.

Only road tandems are approved equipment for this camp.  If you do not have a bike or a pilot (partner) to ride with you at camp, USABA may be able to provide them, so please notify USABA when you apply.

Cyclists will learn bike handling skills, safe riding techniques and road racing strategies.  Riders are on their bikes twice per day and will ride 100 miles for the week. Athletes will practice skills, engage in race simulations and have classroom discussions nightly.

Adaptive Rowing Camp

May 29 - June 4, 2015

In partnership with USRowing and Community Rowing, Inc., the United States Association of Blind Athletes (USABA), is pleased to host an adaptive rowing camp for rowers with physical disabilities and identify potential candidates for participation in the Paralympic Games.  The camp will be held in Boston, MA at Community Rowing. 

The camp is open to male and female participants but is limited to those eligible for the LTA (Legs, Trunks & Arms) Paralympic boat class. Generally speaking, rowers who can use a sliding seat, such as someone with a visual impairment or with single-leg or single-arm involvement, are in the LTA class.

Athletes with disabilities who are currently rowing or have previous rowing experience or who have a high level of fitness and a competitive athletic background are strongly encouraged to apply.

Veterans and Active Duty Service Members with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.  This program was funded in part by a grant by the United States Department of Veteran Affairs.

Program fees for non-military athletes will be no more than $375 and includes all components of the camp (accommodations, ground transportation, meals, equipment, training, etc.).  We endeavor to subsidize these fees for the benefit of qualified candidates.  Travel will be the responsibility of the participant.
