Imagine giving the gift of sports without boundaries – giving someone with a disability the ability to unleash their inner athlete.
The impact goes way beyond the sport. It changes lives. Builds confidence and self-esteem. Sets in motion positive chain of reaction – helping people believe that anything is possible.

“I joined Adaptive Sports Connection (formerly TAASC) back in the winter of 2009 simply to fulfil internship hours for college credit towards my Exercise Science degree at Ohio State. However, from the moment I assisted with my first bi-ski lesson at SnowTrails on that January afternoon, I quickly realized that I’d be sticking around long after my internship hours were complete. J From the skilled instructors and eager volunteers to the wildly dedicated participants, everyone in the Adaptive Sports Connection community strives to make each and every lesson a total pleasure for everyone involved.
Since then, I’ve become involved in Adaptive Sports Connection’s summer sports programming having obtained my Level I Kayak Instructor license with an Adaptive Paddling Certification. Through that, I have taught dozens of kayak lessons, all of which provide me with the same feelings of joy and inspiration that began on that fateful January afternoon long ago.
To be able to assist individuals with disabilities participate in various adventure sports through the Adaptive Sports Connection program is nothing short of inspiring. It has changed my life in ways that you truly cannot imagine. I feel blessed to have stumbled across Adaptive Sports Connection back in the winter of 2009 and my many experiences on the hill and in the water will not soon be forgotten.
– David, Adaptive Sports Connection Volunteer
