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.
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 Adaptive Sports Foundation’s work promotes physical activity for children and adults with disabilities by offering winter activities for recreational skiing and snowboarding.
The ASF supports a competitive race team for athletes with both physical and cognitive challenges, as well as a 12-week residential competition program for Paralympic eligible athletes.

Our goal is to provide student-centered race training opportunities for individuals ranging from part-time athletes whose aspirations may be recreational in nature, to full-time athletes whose aspirations are more competitive, with possible US Paralympics Alpine Skiing National Team aspirations.

All Warriors in Motion programs are goal oriented and empower warrior, to take charge of their own fitness and wellness.
