You're in Good Hands with Adaptive Action Sports!

Our Work:

We provide Action Sports programs for disabled youth, young adults and veterans. Our intention is to break down attitudinal barriers that promote exclusion. Skate and snow-boarding -- sports with which a majority of today’s young people identify -- are our primary tools.

Our Goals:

  •  Provide fun, healthy exercise, skate- and snowboard skill-development, camaraderie and esteem- building activities to adaptive individuals.
  • Provide state-of-the-art action sports skills training by AAS’ certified instructors who have experience working with all ages and all skill levels.
  • Raise awareness of skate- and snowboarding as challenging, and rewarding, sports for adaptive riders.
  • Increase the level of expectation and respect for the abilities and potential of adaptive individuals. 
  • Provide programs for riders whose goals are to increasingly enjoy recreational riding through the development of their skill sets.
  • Introduce the AAS  pipeline to riders of all abilities and scout for – and train -- those with interest and potential to (a) become part of our Skate Demonstration Team or (b) compete for a spot on the US National Parasnowboard Team.

Our Impact:

  • AAS events enrich the lives of participants and spectators while demonstrating that the “disabled” can “live beyond their limits.”
  • The impact is attitudinal change for both the adaptive and general populations.
  • AAS provides role models and heroes.
  • And spectators and athletes alike leave AAS events, feeling INSPIRED.
