Sports are a powerful force that can shift the focus from disability to ability. We offer 10 Olympic-style sports year-round.
Our programs in over 45 DC schools create activities that lead to more inclusive and accepting school environments.
The Healthy Athletes program provides information and resources to help athletes realize sustainably healthy and productive lives.
