THE ADAPTIVE SPORTS EXPERIENCE
Unique to the festival is the inclusion of non-disabled high school athletes. Through our Adaptive Sports Experience program we provide a learning opportunity for students to gain an appreciation for the abilities of people with disabilities, greater understanding of adaptive sports, and present career options in the fields of adaptive sports, rehabilitation and nonprofit service.
REGISTRATION IS FREE TO PARTICIPANTS – Early registration is STRONGLY encouraged
ACTIVITIES – The ABILITY FESTIVAL includes team sports such as soccer, football, volleyball, and basketball; individual sports including tennis, rock climbing, archery and golf and a wide array of recreational activities.
EXHIBITORS: The ABILITY FESTIVAL is also about connecting those who live with a disability to resources that meet their unique needs. Stop by the exhibitor area and meet local and out of area service providers.
