The San Diego VA Medical Center and the National Veterans Sports Programs and Special Events Office invites you to participate in the 2021 National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic This event will promote the value of rehabilitation utilizing a variety of summer leisure activities and adaptive sports. The mission of this innovative program is to provide a training ground for both Veterans and health care providers in exciting outdoor summer sports. Our overall objective is to instill the value of these types of leisure pursuits as a viable means to aid in community re-entry and adjustment. Developing these skills Veterans and therapists will be able to return home and implement a treatment plan emphasizing similar experiences on a regular basis. As part of VA’s continued commitment to Veterans, we are offering this program as a method to educate and build a strong foundation that will further each Veterans’ dedication to their overall rehabilitation, health, and pursuit of a rewarding lifestyle.

The Summer Sports Clinic offers adventure sports and recreational activities such as sailing, surfing, kayaking, and cycling. Complementing the therapy provided in daily rehabilitation programs, the Clinic shares a glimpse of the many exciting recreational opportunities awaiting those Veterans who accept the challenge

All disabilities are subject to review by the National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic medical director and program director.
