What We're About

Sportable has created opportunities and transformed the lives of individuals with physical disabilities and visual impairments through sport since 2005.

Central Virginia's premier adaptive sports club, Sportable provides sporting opportunities to more than 400 athletes each year by offering a variety of competitive and recreational adaptive sports programs.

Our athletes are all ages, come from different backgrounds, and have varying abilities.

By fostering a fun, inclusive, competitive, and accessible environment, we transform the lives of our athletes and free them to see beyond their disability, enhance their peer relationships and help them to reach their personal finish line.

Our Brand Pillars

  • Freeing our athletes to see beyond their disabilities.

  • Building peer relationships & reducing social isolation.

  • Facilitating physical & attitudinal change in our community.

The Sportable Way

Since 2005, Sportable has been providing sport and recreational opportunities to those with physical and visual disabilities throughout central Virginia. During that time we have executed thousands of program hours, purchased and provided adaptive sports equipment for hundreds of athletes, and created community partnerships that have enhanced the lives of those with physical and visual disabilities living in our community.

The reason for our success is simple – our people. Our staff, volunteers, and coaches genuinely care for our athletes and are committed to our mission of transforming the lives of our athletes through sport. They push our athletes to see past their disability. They push our athletes to achieve new heights. They create community within their programs and foster environments where lifelong relationships are formed.

Our people embody what we have come to call The Sportable Way. We define The Sportable Way as “enthusiasm with intention” and it is guided by our core values:

  • Integrity

    Being true to our word and honoring commitments to athletes, partners, and community

  • Team Spirit

    The expectation that our community will enjoy a sport for its own sake, while upholding the highest standard of fairness, respect, and camaraderie

  • Passion

    Committing to work hard, stay positive, and encourage success in others

  • Ingenuity

    Fostering an environment where athletes and volunteers are able to reach their full potential
