VA’s National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic marks 12th consecutive year

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, in collaboration with Wounded Warrior Project, Veterans Canteen Service and dozens of other partners, will host more than 130 veterans from across the nation at the 12th annual National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic, Sept. 15 to 20, in San Diego.

The week-long rehabilitation sports and recreation clinic for Veterans with disabilities features instruction in adaptive CrossFit, cycling, kayaking, sailing and surfing.

“There is no finer place than the Summer Sports Clinic to see the incredible heart and courage of our warrior Veterans,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. “More than camaraderie and sportsmanship, this clinic helps our Veterans thrive through adaptive sports and other activities. I’m proud of our dedicated staff and all the community supporters who make this possible.”

The clinic kicks off with opening ceremonies at the Wyndham San Diego Bayside Hotel on Sept. 15 at 6 p.m. Sports activities take place Sept.16 to 20.

The National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic is hosted by the VA San Diego Healthcare System and the San Diego community.
