These games will provide three days of competition, educational clinics and socials. GLASA is honored to host the Adult National Open for a sixth year. The adult games will run in conjunction to the regional games and will include many of our injured military.  The GLRG is a qualifier for the Adaptive Sports USA, Junior Nationals (for some a first step to the U.S. Paralympics). The Adult National Open and GLRG are unique in that they serve the beginner, first time sport enthusiast to the Paralympic hopeful athlete; following the GLASA motto of “Let NO ONE Sit on the SIDELINES”.  

The Great Lakes Games are supported by the United States Paralympics and Adaptive Sports, USA. This event is one of the largest competitions in the country for athletes who have a physical or visual impairment. Sports for both competitions include swimming, track, field, boccia, archery, powerlifting, and air rifles.
