Innovative and effective, AccesSportAmerica inspires higher function and fitness for children and adults living with disabilities through high-challenge sports.
We are reaching 1,700 children and adults annually in our year round high-challenge sports, training and camp programs.
Our High-Challenge Sports program specializes in adaptive windsurfing, Hawaiian outrigger canoeing, kayaking and other water sports. The same innovative spirit and challenge is applied to adaptive cycling, tennis, soccer and climbing.
Our Training & Sports program builds on new found capabilities and strengths and includes personal training as well as conditioning with sports including adaptive soccer and tennis. Our Sports Camps focus on building specific skills in windsurfing, Hawaiian outrigger canoeing, surfing and soccer. We believe that both sport specific and functional goals can be achieved during this intensive but relatively short training period.
Nationally recognized, AccesSportAmerica creates and develops innovative adaptive equipment to adapt to all abilities. We adapt sports that the most agile of athletes find challenging. AccesSport was the first to adapt the sport of windsurfing for people with disabilities.
Many children and adults are experiencing these sports for the first time in their lives. They are learning that they can do more than they ever thought possible as accomplishments on the water or land carry over into everyday lives. Each session seems to contain its own set of accomplishments and miracles.
AccesSportAmerica empowers children, youth and adults to more fully enjoy life, to be healthier, increase function and fitness, reach beyond expectations, and grow and achieve through high-challenge sports. Programs are designed to promote each person's highest physical and athletic potential while cultivating social and emotional well being. The exhilaration inherent to each sport is just a part of the experience; it fosters positive change in function and fitness as well as attitude and expectation for a life lived with a disability. Our athletes, experience a series of unparalleled accomplishments through mastery of balance, coordination and fear.
Our programs build community, relationships and commitment, all while overcoming limitations, disparity and discrimination.
We seek to create a community where differences are diminished, blurred and often erased.
