Adaptive Climbing Initiative Course
Rock Gem – Louisville, KY
Join Paradox Sports and Paralyzed Veterans of America for this two day Adaptive Climbing Initiative Course at Rock Gem Climbing Center in Louisville, KY!! The adaptive climbing initiative is an invitation to all of us – adaptive athletes, recreational climbers, climbing facilitators, gym staff, and volunteers – to rethink what is possible.
Sponsored by The North Face, adaptive climbing courses include a mix of classroom education, open discussions and on-the-wall training and facilitation over a two day period. Facilitators explain the specifics for creating and curating an adaptive climbing program while developing safe, inclusive, supportive communities for adaptive athletics. With a focus on physical adaptation for climbing with paralysis, amputation, visual/hearing impairment, and neuromuscular disorders, these courses provide information and access to adaptive climbing equipment, the first of its kind comprehensive adaptive climbing manual, systems and resources. The expert anecdotes and lessons provided serve adaptive athletes, climbing wall instructors, outdoor guides, physical therapists, and well-being advocates of all types.
Saturday June 29, 9AM – 4:30PM
Sunday June 30, 9AM – 12PM
REGISTRATION REQUIRED. For questions, please contact Paradox Executive Director Dave Elmore at Dave@paradoxsports.org
