Goals of this year’s clinics:

- Build a team of skiers and support personnel to compete in future adaptive events and competitions
- Establish long term relationships with fellow team mates
- Build, recruit and train a USA Paralympic Nordic Team for the 2022 Paralympics
Each participant will receive professional instruction using one of 4 adaptive cross-country ski rigs provided by a grant from Operation Rebound/Challenged Athletes Foundation and the Veterans Administration.
The free clinics will be held at the Kirkwood Cross Country Ski area on 28 and 29 March.
A list of winter appropriate clothing and food will be sent to participants. Each participant will be asked to sign a release of liability provided by the clinic organizer and instructor.
Weather and road conditions will be determined two days prior to clinics by way of cell phone and/or email contact with the event organizers in order to assure safe travel and conditions for participants.
