Get Healthy, Stay Fit and Have Fun: The Benefits of Adaptive Sports
We want you to know that no matter your disability, age or skill level, an adaptive sports opportunity exists for you. But, besides the fun, new friendships and exercise, why should you consider adaptive sports? Studies show that adaptive sports provide the following clear benefits for people with physical disabilities or visual impairments:
reduced dependency on pain and depression medication
fewer secondary medical conditions (i.e., diabetes, hypertension)
higher achievement in education and employment
Participating in adaptive sports allows you to redefine yourself and live an active, healthy and fun lifestyle.
SportAbility of Iowa is dedicated to providing sport and recreation opportunities to people of all ages with physical disabilities throughout the eastern Iowa corridor. For more information on the programs we offer, see the list under SportAbility Quicklinks.
Iowa's First Paralympic Sport Club...
SportAbility of Iowa is also a Paralympic Sport Club--a community-based program developed in partnership with US Paralympics "to involve
youth and adults with physical and visual disabilities in sports and
physical activity, regardless of skill level."
Together with U.S. Paralympics, SportAbility of Iowa works to indentify, recruit, and support high-level athletes with physical and visual disabilities
who want to take part in Paralympic competition.
