The competition includes sitting volleyball, wheelchair basketball, swimming, cycling, shooting, archery, and track and field. The Trials also provide a forum to select 50 athletes as members of the All-Marine team for the Warrior Games. The Warrior Games, a competition between all branches of service of wounded, ill, and injured service members, will take place in Colorado Springs, Colo., April 30-May 6, 2012.
