Equipment:  
If Wheelchair Racing equipment is needed, we do have extra chairs for an athlete to try.  If a chair is fitted for you and you are a part of a Texas community program or Junior High or High School program, then the chair can be loaned to the community program for your use or to the athlete for use in Junior High or High School programs.  No chairs are loaned or sent out of state.

Some session topics 
Running, Pushing, Throwing, Jumping Technique; strength training; developing training plans; navigating the Paralympic Pipeline; Racing Chair maintenance; 1 on 1 roller sessions for intermediate athletes; hands-on session out at the track.

We strive to get some of the top Paralympic Athletes and US Paralympic National Team Coaches as our instructors.  We will announce the instructors in January.
