EMPOWERING LIVES THROUGH SPORT
CAF logo

CAF-Northeast 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 Northeast region to give individuals with a permanent physical disability the opportunity to learn a new sport or improve their skills.
