This is Kyle Coon, Programs and SafeSport Coordinator for USABA. At USABA, we are inspired every day by the amazing feats our members across the U.S. are accomplishing. Whether you’re a swimmer competing for Team USA at the Paralympic Games, or a runner completing your first-ever marathon at the USABA Marathon National Championships, USABA is here to help improve your life through sports, recreation and physical activity.
As a Tokyo 2020 hopeful in paratriathlon, I greatly understand and value the power that adaptive sports can have on a person’s life. I lost my sight at the age of 6 after a battle with Retinoblastoma — cancer of the eye. However, not having sight did not stop me from pursuing my vision. As a young child I was taught to embrace adversity by living life to its fullest. Since that time I have become a competitive rock climber, downhill skier, runner and triathlete.
There has never been a better time to be an athlete who is blind and visually impaired. Thanks to adaptive technology, online resources, and the connectivity of social media, blind athletes have every opportunity to accomplish their biggest goals and aspirations. USABA is here to help make that happen.
So please – send us an email, and let’s chat!
Yours in Sport,
USABA Programs and SafeSport Coordinator
Tokyo Paralympic Hopeful
