Event details:

In partnership with USRowing and the Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation, 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 at the Oklahoma City National High Performance Training Center.

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. Travel and program fees are provided for disabled Veterans and disabled members of the Armed Forces. 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.

Program fees for non-military athletes will be no more than $250 and include 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.

Applications must be submitted no later than April 15.
