One able body helping another. Benefiting Adaptive Sports in San Diego County

Adaptive Sports

MMB Tennis 2013 (109)

Disabled sports also adaptive sports or parasports, are sports played by persons with a disability, including physical and intellectual disabilities. As many of these based on existing sports modified to meet the needs of persons with a disability, they are sometimes referred to as adapted sports. However, not all disabled sports are adapted; several sports that have been specifically created for persons with a disability have no equivalent in able-bodied sports. Disability exists in four categories: physical, mental, permanent and temporary.

Each year, hundreds of physically challenged children and adults are in need of support in order to remain active and live healthy happy lives.  Miss Mission
