Regional Program Development

In addition to promoting sport at the local level through Paralympic Sport Clubs, U.S. Paralympics, a division of the United States Olympic Committee, is partnering with community leaders in five geographic areas to provide regional programming that will help the growth of Paralympic sport. The five areas of focus are Chicago, New England, the Southeast, Texas and the West, and regional contact information is listed below.

Within each region, a local partner works in support of existing community programs to assist with participant recruitment; host camps, clinics, competitions and coaching education sessions; and coordinate events and activities among programs in the region, rather than a specific community. The USOC offers assistance in development of philanthropic, governmental, corporate and media resources.

The goal of all activities within each region is to expand the availability of quality sport and physical activity programs for physically and visually impaired youth and adults with a primary emphasis on involving permanently injured veterans.
