We are currently going over the results of a recent survey we did exploring individuals with disabilities interest in adaptive sports and recreation in the greater Boston area. Once we get these results, we will share them with you and let you know what additional sports we would like to introduce to the community. We have also applied for a grant to do three adaptive sports and recreation demonstrations in underrepresented Boston area neighborhoods.
For now, here are some resources we would like to share with you if you are interested in exploring adaptive sports:
