As a part of the Gateway to Gold program, U.S. Paralympics and its community partners, including National Governing Bodies, Paralympic Sport Clubs and veteran organizations are hosting free introduction to sport and talent identification events across the country. The target population for the program is Paralympic-eligible (classifiable) athletes with a physical, visual or intellectual impairment. Emphasis is being placed on high school to collegiate-aged athletes. However, events are open to individuals of all ages who have a Paralympic-eligible impairment, although some events may be invitation-only.

The 2015 event schedule has not been released.
