Adaptive Sports Program
The Adaptive Sports Program by the Hospital for Special Care empowers individuals with physical disabilities to play sports and participate in recreational activities. The program finds the perfect sport for each participant- from tennis to shotput, soccer to biking- and fits their needs to achieve their greatest level of independence, success, and joy. The program also supports youth and adults on their journey to competitions, including the Paralympic Trials.
Each year, the Program also hosts an Adaptive Sports Camp which is provided free of cost to campers age 6-19. Campers travel from all over the east coast for the opportunity to exercise, socialize, and train on various sports with their peers. This year the camp will be hosted in Berlin, CT during the week of August 3rd.
