Utica, NY (WIBX) – Sitrin will host its first-ever Paralympic Military Curling Camp for veterans.

The public is invited to watch eight veterans from Illinois, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin take part in the camp this Sunday and Monday at the Utica Curling Club on Clark Mills Road in Whitesboro.

The camp educates participants about the sport of wheelchair curling and enable them to engage in practice sessions and games. Paralympic athletes, coaches and Sitrin STARS athletes will conduct the training.

Director of the Sitrin STARS Program Marc DePerno says the camp is an opportunity for wounded veterans from around the country to learn about the sport.

“The U.S. Olympics recognizes Utica, N.Y. as a center of excellence for the sport of wheelchair curling,” he said. “So, we have a wonderful opportunity to showcase not only Utica, but the wonderful sport of wheelchair curling and getting new athletes in the pipeline for future Paralympics.”

The United States Olympic Committee is sponsoring the event.

One-ice instruction will take place Sunday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and a practice and game will be held on Monday from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
