Sportable Youth

Sportable programs aren’t just for adults – if you’re a kid or teenager with a physical disability or visual impairment, come on out and join us! Challenge yourself…try something new, become a competitor, be part of a team. In the midst of all that, we’re pretty sure you will make some friends, discover skills & talents you didn’t know you had, and find out how much fun it is to be active and to be an athlete. Your parents will be happy too. Youth who are involved in sports and recreation are healthier, more independent, more confident, and even do better in school. Don’t take our word for it though; see what one of our current athlete’s has to say:

Colin playing Basketball“My physical therapist dared me to check out wheelchair basketball with Sportable. I didn’t want to go, but after the first practice, I was hooked. I have played ever since and I love it! Not only have I gotten to play basketball, but I have been handcycling, rock climbing, played rugby, raced the Monument Ave 10K, and am about to compete in my first triathlon.” Colin Egan, Age 14
