Whether you’re super-competitive or just want to get your heart rate up a few times a week, Sportable has something for you. Sportable offers a wide range of adaptive sports – both competitive and recreational – for adults ages 18 and up with a physical disability or visual impairment. Our adult athletes and teams have a history of success at the local, state and national level, and some athletes have competed internationally! While our athletes challenge themselves athletically, they find camaraderie and build confidence.
Why should you participate? Studies show that adults involved in adaptive sports have increased employment rates, more physically active lifestyles and increased socialization. Additionally, regular participation in sports has been shown to increase overall physical and mental well-being while decreasing depression. Sportable is more than sports; it’s a chance to make new friends and live your best life.
Don’t take our word for it, though. Here’s what some of our athletes say:
“There are lots of events for the blind and programs that I can participate in. Without Sportable, I would not be active and would not exercise and have a healthy lifestyle,” says athlete Mike.
Christian says, “Because of Sportable, I have been able to participate in lots of different sports. I have been an athlete with Sportable since the beginning of the organization, and it has made a big difference in my life.”
“Sportable helped me to totally regain my physical independence but it has allowed me the opportunity to help others understand that they can do the same,” says Taylor.
