About the Adaptive Sports Foundation
The Adaptive Sports Foundation (ASF) is a non-profit 501(c)3 that provides profound and life changing experiences for individuals 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 mild learning disabilities to more severe disabilities such as paralysis, autism, amputation, cerebral palsy, and traumatic brain injury.

Founded in 1984, the ASF is currently considered one of the top adaptive sports programs in the country and offers both winter and summer sports to both children and adults. Participants in ASF’s programs are primarily from the New York tri-state area (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut), while others come to us from other areas in the U.S. In 2010 -11, the organization’s 261 volunteers provided 3,061 lessons to individuals with disabilities and 27,00 hours of education to ASF students.
