The United States Association of Blind Athletes is excited to announce Adaptive Sports Iowa and Ames, Iowa will host the 2014 USABA Goalball National Championships.
“Although they’re a relatively young organization, Adaptive Sports Iowa has become a national leader in adaptive sports,” says John Potts, USABA’s sports director. “This past year, Adaptive Sports Iowa in conjunction with the Ames Iowa Visitors and Convention Bureau hosted the 2012 National Beep Baseball Association World Series, acclaimed as one of the best-ever events of its kind ever held. USABA is absolutely excited about the ability to partner with an organizing committee and a community with the passion and ability to host a world-class championship competition and share our passion for Goalball with crown jewel of our 2014 national Goalball season.”
Adaptive Sports Iowa officially kicked off operation March 8, 2011 with the Adaptive Sports Iowa Summit and Press Conference. As a program of the Iowa Sports Foundation, Adaptive Sports Iowa’s goal is to support and grow sport and recreation programs for Iowa’s physically disabled population.
Additional information on the June 19-21, 2014 tournament will be posted to the USABA website (http://www.usaba.org) as it becomes available.
