Meet The Local Organizing Committee

Calling all Colorado Athletes!

We want YOU on the Colorado Team for the Move United 2021 Junior Nationals.

This unique national championship event will be in our backyard in Thornton/Westminster, CO on July 17-23!  Open to young athletes ages 6 through 22 with a physical disability or visual impairment.

Now is the time to train and qualify! Sports include archery, paratriathlon, powerlifting, shooting, swimming and track and field with a clinic in wheelchair and adaptive tennis.

The local qualifying opportunity for archery and track and field is at 5280 Challenge on Sunday, June 6.  Track and field classification available!

Not sure where to train or how to get involved?  Various programs exist in Colorado. Connect with your local sport teams such as your neighboring swim club or a Move United member organization (hyperlink https://www.moveunitedsport.org/chapters/location-map/).  Not all adaptive programs in the area offer the sports at Junior Nationals.  If you need help, feel free to contact one of the individuals listed below with knowledge of the sport.  They are volunteering as sport leads for Junior Nationals.  They may not have all the answers but they can help give you some ideas.
