Siouxland Adaptive Sports Clinic set for Oct. 25-26
In 2018, a group of Northwest Iowa parents joined together to start the first ever Siouxland Adaptive Sports Clinic. This year, the fall Siouxland Adaptive Sports Clinic returns with activities aimed to encourage and strengthen athletes of all abilities. The free event will be held in Sioux Center on October 25-26.
This year’s clinic features sled hockey, swimming, cheer/dance, basketball, and badminton. The goal of the clinic is provide locals with an opportunity to try a new sport or build more skills and confidence in a sport they already enjoy. Participants are able to build relationships with local and national athletes, and in addition to the activities, an expo will be held and will feature adaptive resources, programs and vendors.
The clinic has room for 50 registrants between the ages 8-22 and participants must be eligible under Paralympic Classification System; for example, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Spinal Cord Injury, Amputee, Polio, Visual Impairment.
