Event Overview:

Gateway to Gold is a talent identification program that will introduce people with Paralympic-eligible impairments to Paralympic sport and lead them to the athlete pipeline for the U.S. Paralympic Team. As a cornerstone of Gateway to Gold, U.S. Paralympics and its community partners, including National Governing Bodies, Paralympic Sport Clubs and veteran organizations are hosting introduction to sport and talent identification events across the country. The Gateway to Gold program is a prospective athletes’ first step toward the podium as well as a significant component in the organization’s mission to have the U.S. Paralympic Team ranked No. 1 in the world like its Olympic counterparts.
