Texas Regional Paralympic Sport is working in the Texas region to help grow opportunities for individuals with physical and visual disabilities to participate in ongoing sports and recreation programs at the community level. Programs in the Texas region are growing and include both recreational and competitive sport activities.
TRPS manages many camps, clinics and large competive events. In addition to the ongoing programs and events for athletes with physical disabilities TRPS also manages and fosters the Veterans Administration Adaptive Sports Grant. Ensuring that our wounded service members have optimal opportunities to participate in sport and recreation.
Our largest and newest project is the UIL Paralympic Inclusion Program. TRPS is the partner organization to the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Paralympic Inclusion Program. TRPS provides program administration, advocacy, equipment loan, and coaching education to all the high schools and junior highs across the State of Texas. The inclusion program to date is offering Wheelchair Racing and Seated Throws, however we are advocating for ambulatory track and field events as well as Swimming and other sports for athletes with physical disabilities. These young athletes get to be full members of their High School or Junior High athletic teams.
Please help us to continue to serve this amazing group of young athletes and our wounded service members through sport and recreation as rehabilitation.
