The National Veterans Wheelchair Games

In June, 2016, the KIPVA Super Spokes will compete in the National Veterans Wheelchair Games. KIPVA President & Sports Director, Kevin Sparks encourages every member of KIPVA to consider participating in the Wheelchair Games at least once to experience the physical challenge, cameraderie and excitement that is inherent to the games.  Novice athletes are always welcome.  

Each year more than 500 novice and experienced athletes meet for a week of archery, swimming, weightlifting, basketball, quad rugby and more. It's the National Veterans Wheelchair Games, the largest annual wheelchair sports competition of its kind in the world.

Throughout the week, veterans realize their abilities and potential while enjoying the spirit of healthy activity and fellowship. The Department of Veterans Affairs and Paralyzed Veterans of America have co-presented the Games since 1985.
