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. Through participation in ASF programs many
individuals experience, in some cases for the first time in their lives, that they have a new identity which is
associated with a sport and not with their disability.
ASF has helped students gain the confidence, drive, and direction to participate in winter and summer sports with some even participating in the Winter Special Olympics, such as skiers Staci Manella (Sochi 2014) and Caitlin Sarubbi (Vancouver 2010).
The ASF offers a variety of summer sport opportunities. These activities take place in a beautiful setting of
Windham and the surrounding area. One of the newest summer programs is the Adaptive Skateboard
Program, commandeered by ASF’s very own student, Zachary Elder.
The ASF’s Warriors in Motion® (WIM) program provides participating injured United States servicemen and
women with a basic knowledge and practice of wellness and the importance of lifelong healthy living. All
Warriors in Motion programs are goal oriented and empower warriors to take charge of their own fitness and
Since 1984, the ASF has provided 79,000+ adaptive lessons which allowed 13,253 individuals lead healthier
and more active lives.
