Life After Injury – Disabled Veterans Experience Adaptive Sports!

VA’s newest national program, the Summer Sports Clinic promotes rehabilitation of body and spirit by teaching summer sporting activities to Veterans with significant physical or psychological impairments. The Clinic offers such sports as surfing, sailing, kayaking, track and field, and cycling to over 100 Veterans who are newly injured from amputations, traumatic brain injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder and other neurological disorders, all benefitting from the therapeutic environment offered at the Clinic. The National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic offers Veterans greater exposure to new adaptive sports and recreational activities. Photo courtesy Dept. of Veterans Affairs. VA photo by Jeff Bowen.
