In 2012, NWSRA formed its own Paralympic Sport Club - Paralympic Sport Northwest Suburban Chicago. Paralympic Sport Club is a national cooperative grass roots program that introduces Paralympic sports to emerging athletes. This community-based organization involves youth and adults with physical and visual disabilities in sports and physical activity, regardless of skill level.
NWSRA provides a variety of opportunities for Paralympic involvement, including Sled Hockey, Tennis and Archery. The U.S. Paralympic Experience is a one day event that invites individuals with physical and/or visual impairments to experience Paralympic sports first hand. Activities include Boccia, wheelchair tennis and wheelchair softball. Individuals can choose to play recreationally or competitively in a variety of offerings.
In addition, you can meet individually with one of the NWSRA staff members to discuss programs that might interest you. For more information about the Paralympic Sport Club, contact Manny Aguilar, ext 258, or e-mail email@example.com
