Adaptive sports training aims to impact wounded warriors, community members
from U.S. Army
Instructors from the United States Olympic Committee's Paralympic Military Program led an adaptive sports clinic at the Kleber Gym and Fitness Center in Kaiserslautern, Germany Nov. 7-10, for Warrior Transition Battalion-Europe Soldiers, cadre and Army Morale Welfare and Recreation staff. The training clinic, which included wheelchair basketball, archery, seated volleyball and several strength and conditioning drills, was presented in a train-the-trainer design. This method not only introduced soldiers and leaders to adaptive sports techniques, it also taught them how to develop adaptive sports and fitness programs that can be incorporated into WTUs throughout Europe.
