USABA Development Rowing Camp
USABA in partnership with U.S. Rowing, Disabled Sports USA and U.S. Paralympics, is pleased to host the first development camp for rowers with physical disabilities; to include those individuals who are blind or visually impaired in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Participants will increase their individual rowing technique, build rowing confidence, provide opportunities to row in a team boat and learn the skills of competitive racing. A special invitation is extended to disabled Veterans and disabled members of the Armed Forces who sustained physical disabilities (vision loss and lower- and upper-body amputee). Financial support for injured service men and women is available. Grant funding for this program is awarded by U.S. Paralympics, a division of the U.S. Olympic Committee, through funding provided by Veterans Affairs. The grants are provided to facilitate the growth of Paralympic sport programming for disabled Veterans and disabled members of the Armed Forces.
