This is Cat Bouwkamp, membership 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 2012 Paralympian in wheelchair fencing, I greatly understand and value the power that adaptive sports can have on a person’s life. Growing up with a physical disability, it was always believed that I could and would do less than my able-bodied peers, but sports gave me the opportunity to prove to others, as well as myself, that I am so much more than my disability. The lessons that sports give us – teamwork, goal-setting, work ethic, etc. – apply to all parts of life for every individual.
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 – give us a call, send us an email, and let’s chat!
Yours in Sport,
USABA Membership and SafeSport Coordinator
2012 Team USA Paralympian
