Clarksville, TN – City of Clarksville Parks and Recreation announces a new experience for Clarksville area youth and adults. The “Paralympic Experience” is scheduled for Saturday March 9th, at the Kleeman Community Center.
This event is open to youth and adults at least 8-years-old, including active duty service members and veterans, with physical and visual disabilities, regardless of skill level. The Paralympic Experience will feature an introduction to many adaptive sporting events.
Games will be played recreationally, but will still be scored for a little competitive fun. Events will include Goal Ball, Wheelchair Basketball, Archery, Seated Volleyball and SCUBA diving. Players can enjoy games designed specifically for them and learn more about Paralympic Sport Club Clarksville.
Parents and other family members, as well as other members of the public, are invited to participate and experience all that Paralympic Sport Clarksville has to offer. All participants can pre-register online at recpro.cityofclarksville.com. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged but is not required.
U.S. Paralympics, a division of the U.S. Olympic Committee, and the City of Clarksville’s Parks & Recreation department partnered in May 2012 to create Paralympic Sport Clarksville. This is just one in a line of events to be hosted by Parlympic Sport Club Clarksville. All programs and activities will be based in Clarksville and run by Clarksville’s Parks & Recreation department.
Volunteers will be needed for this event. If you are interested in volunteering with the Paralympic Experience, please contact Kevin Cowling at 931.645.7476.
