Catalyst Veterans Initiative
Catalyst Sports was founded when a team of disabled Veterans traveled to Wyoming and climbed the 13,775ft Grand Teton in 2012. Since then we have continued to serve our U.S. Veterans through the The Catalyst Veterans Initiative. This initiative provides various opportunities for service men and women who have incurred a physical or mental injury or illness to participate in challenging adventure programs within a supportive community of other U.S. Veterans and civilians.
The following is a list of our current Veterans programming. We are always open to new ideas and partnerships to expand this programming. If you’d like more information on any of our current offerings or if you are interested in partnering with us to help expand our offerings, please don’t hesitate to contact us anytime! We’d love to hear from you.
Indoor Climbing Sessions
There are monthly opportunities for veterans to climb for free at locations across the southeast and in Greater DC
Whether it is for strength, endurance, fun or social interaction with fellow veterans we encourage you to sign up and come and see what it’s all about.
Reserve your spot for veteran climbing night!
Veterans Outdoor Climb
Take the challenge outdoors! We are offering a series of outdoor climbing opportunities in partnership with The Gallant Few. The locations are all accessible for people with mobility challenges and offer climbing for all experience levels.
Each event will be a weekend-long experience with overnight lodging in tents near the climbing area. Food, camping, and climbing equipment are provided. Assitance with gas costs available on request.
Next Outdoor climbing trip: September 9/11
Location: Table Rock, North Carolina
Veterans Mountain Biking
We are excited to be partnering with The Dirt Therapy Project to host rides in both Texas and North Carolina. The Dirt Therapy Project caters to riders of all skill levels from beginner to advanced. They help riders who have a basic MTB skill set to enjoy local trails and advance their riding through a community of talented individuals. Don’t have the gear you need? We have upright bikes and adaptive bikes to make our events fully inclusive.
