WCAP Paralympic Program
The U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program is available for Soldiers with physical disabilities who demonstrate the commitment and skill to pursue elite level competitions. The program provides the support and training to compete and succeed in national and international competitions and the Paralympic Games, while maintaining a professional military career. The Program strives to enhance the rehabilitation, readiness, and quality of life for injured Soldiers through Paralympic sports. The sports listed under Paralympic Sports by Disability Group are the sports available in WCAP's Paralympic Program.
WCAP offers all members of the Army (Active, Reserve, and National Guard) the same opportunity for selection. All Soldiers must be retainable and fit for duty. Soldiers who are selected from the Reserve and National Guard will be brought on Active Duty to participate in the program. Soldiers applying for the program must demonstrate the potential to achieve and maintain a high national ranking in the Paralympic Sport.
