INCLUSIVE SPORT LEADERSHIP
Adaptive Sports New England collaborates with youth, high school and college leagues/conferences to include Para sport events in new and existing competitions. We design inclusive structures and formats, and support the leagues/conferences as they implement these procedures. Our past and current partners include South Shore YMCA, Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association, Eastern College Athletic Conference, NCAA, U.S. Olympic Committee, and additional New England based college conferences.
SPORT CONCIERGE AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
Through our free Sport Concierge service, Adaptive Sports NE provides individualized consultation to youth and young adults who have visual or mobility impairments on how to get involved in local leagues, teams and programs. We respond to questions from athletic directors, coaches, parents and athletes. We research the situation and resources available; we provide training to coaches and guides; and we offer ongoing technical assistance as needed. Whether an athlete is just getting started or already a seasoned competitor, Adaptive Sports NE will help identify the best inclusion solution available for each individual.
