City of Reno Parks, Recreation & Community Services
The City of Reno Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) Department has developed a number of guiding principles to ensure full inclusion of participants of all abilities and has recognized the demand for increased services in the area of adaptive recreation programming. In October 2008, City of Reno became a Paralympic Sport Club. Prior to this National affiliation, City of Reno only offered adaptive recreation clinics and workshops on a limited basis. It has been with the support of US Paralympics that we have been able to expand to year-round adaptive recreation programming that is available to all individuals regardless of ability and/or military status.
Las Vegas Silver Bandits
The Las Vegas Silver Bandits are a member of the National Wheelchair Basketball Association (NWBA). As a registered team, we are provided insurance as well as the opportunity to participate in numerous tournaments across the country.
Team River Runner Reno
Team River Runner (TRR), established in August 2004 by kayakers in the Washington, DC area, is a primarily volunteer non-profit organization run by a council of kayakers and overseen by a board of directors. TRR was initially established to help active duty military personnel wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan who were recovering at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. With the success there obvious and the opportunity elsewhere apparent, TRR expanded to other Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) chapter sites in 2007. TRR envisions a national network which creates innovative paddling programs designed to assist with the recovery of those injured while serving our country. Through paddle sports, TRR volunteers and partners provide local communities unique opportunities for the active, safe and positive support of healing service members and their families.
