Adaptive Sports Foundation

About us

The Adaptive Sports Foundation (ASF) is a non-profit organization that provides profound and life changing experiences for children and adults with physical and cognitive disabilities and chronic illnesses through outdoor physical activity, education, support and community.

ASF students are five years of age and older and live with disabilities ranging from relatively mild learning disabilities to more severe disabilities such as paralysis, autism, amputation, cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injury.

Founded in 1984, the Foundation’s work promotes physical activity for children and adults with disabilities. ASF students are five years of age and older and live with disabilities ranging from relatively mild learning disabilities to more severe disabilities such as paralysis, autism, amputation, cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injury.

Winter recreation programs are offered on an individual and group basis from December through March and feature alpine skiing and snowboarding. ASF has a very active competition program, preparing athletes for Paralympic and Special Olympic competition.

Our summer military programs teach veterans golf, recreational and competitive canoeing and kayaking, cycling, stand up paddle boarding and personal fitness.

The ASF’s Warriors in Motion® (WIM) program provides participating injured United States servicemen and women with a basic knowledge and practice of wellness and the importance of lifelong healthy living.  Each event includes adaptive sports and nutrition instruction as well as other healthful practices such as yoga, and stress reduction techniques.  Over the course of the event, there is also time for the participants to connect with each other.  We view the time that veterans spend together as an essential part of their healing.  All Warriors in Motion programs are goal oriented and empower warrior, to take charge of their own fitness and wellness.
