Veterans Adaptive Sports is a non-profit charity organization that helps disabled veterans of all ages learn through instruction how to re-engage in sports and recreational activities. These sports/recreational activities consist of activities of which equipment has been developed or modified so the veteran can be accommodated and will allow them to participate. Currently our disabled veterans are paralyzed, visually impaired, and have various levels of upper- and lower-extremity amputations.
These veterans have participated in downhill and cross-country skiing, rock climbing, kayaking, water skiing, scuba diving, sailing, white water rafting, jet skiing, fishing and golfing. By far the most popular activity is skiing. Our veterans have been able to partake in two ski trips per year. Several veterans now have the skills and abilities to be considered experts. Our ski trips have been sponsored by Florida Ski Council and its chartered chapters for the past 10 years for which we are extremely grateful.
