THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!



Seattle Adaptive Sport, along with Seattle Parks and Recreation: Specialized Programs is hosting a large sports clinic on Saturday, June 15th at Rainier Beach Community Center. There will be multiple sports to experience from those in the Puget Sound area offering programs. The goal and purpose of this event is to bring awareness of fitness, sports and social activities available to individuals with physical disabilities, as well resources available in the area. The day will be scheduled to promote inclusion and form community with peers from around the state of Washington.


There will be many sports and recreation programs available to have a hands-on experience, as well watch athletes currently involved in these sports. You will find information about resources in your community for recreation, employment support, independent living skills, healthcare and advocacy.


Plan to come and play for the day to experience all that is offered. The day starts at 9am and will wrap up at 4pm. If you can't make the whole day, there will still be plenty of activities to experience. Sports programs are for individuals with a permanent physical disability that prevents them from participating in sports and athletics.
