U.S. Paralympics is partnering with community organizations from across the country to create a network of Paralympic Sport Clubs that provide local sport programming for individuals with Paralympic-eligible impairments, including physical disabilities and visual impairments. While many Paralympic Sport Clubs focus on grassroots programming, many also provide opportunities at the national and international levels.

By supporting Paralympic Sport Clubs with resources including coaching education and program development courses, U.S. Paralympics and its National Governing Bodies/High Performance Management Organizations have helped increase the availability of sport programming for athletes with Paralympic-eligible impairments.

Currently operating in 48 states and Washington, D.C., U.S. Paralympics is committed to partnering with organizations across the United States to ensure Paralympic Sport Clubs are available in all 50 states.
