EMPOWERING LIVES THROUGH SPORT
CAF logo

CAF-NorCal offers clinics, programs, grants, and community events to individuals with physical disabilities, while also supporting families, encouraging volunteers, and appreciating our supporters. These opportunities not only provide access to sports but also foster a sense of community, allowing individuals to meet others. A variety of sports clinic opportunities are hosted throughout the year in the greater Bay Area to give individuals with a permanent physical disability the opportunity to learn a new sport or improve their skills.

Meet remarkable athletes, learn their stories, and feel their passion. See how CAF opens a world of opportunities to those with physical disabilities, cultivating communities through programs, mentorships, and coaching; funding the equipment that makes participation possible; and, most importantly, providing unwavering support.
