Why Sports Camp?

Dear parent, guardian or teacher: 

We are pleased to announce open registration for the 2019 Sports Education Camp for Youths with Visual Impairments sponsored by the Michigan Blind Athletic Association and Western Michigan University (WMU). CLICK HERE FOR REGISTRATION

We have been providing sports training and instruction to some of the world’s most elite athletes from around the United States for over 30 years, including many paralympians. We train at WMU’s state-of-the-art facilities and our staff includes paralympians, professionals in the fields of athletics and blind rehabilitation, motivated college students, and former Sports Camp athletes.  

Sports Camp is designed to meet the athlete at his or her level, whether learning to throw a ball for the first time or training for national competition. We provide small group and one-on-one instruction in a friendly, positive environment. Your athlete will have the opportunity to play sports and build lifelong relationships with other athletes who are blind or visually impaired.  

There are two Sports Camp sessions broken down by age: Junior Camp (9-12) and Senior Camp (13-18). At Junior Camp, we examine basic movements, such as throwing and jumping. At Senior Camp, we work on sports specific training, such as track & field, swimming, goalball, cycling, wrestling, hockey, soccer, judo, and more.  

We are proud of our long history of taking young athletes from the sidelines to the goal lines—and having quite a bit of fun along the way! If you have any questions, please contact us at michigansec@gmail.com or 231-715-1732. 

Thank you,


The Sports Camp Team!
