HIGH SCHOOL ADAPTIVE SPORTS PROGRAM

 

Announcing our new program for students attending or preparing for high school—the High School Adaptive Sports Program (HSASP). The goal of our program is to increase awareness of parasport opportunities and prepare middle school and high school student athletes to join their high school teams. Our first initiative is the Adaptive Track & Field Program in San Diego and Northern California. As more high schools embrace parasport, our future goal is to develop additional resources for more sports.

Equipment 

CAF will provide loaner equipment in San Diego and Northern California to student athletes registered in the program. Equipment will be used in CAF training sessions and can be used by athletes to compete as part of their school program. CAF coaches will train athletes and provide support to their HS coaching staff to teach the skills necessary to compete in adaptive Track & Field events.

 

Grants

Athletes in the program can qualify for grant opportunities. Grants will be awarded for track & field equipment and for travel opportunities to compete at local and national events.

 

Online Training Videos

To support the program and adaptive track and field athletes worldwide, we have created 13 Adaptive Track & Field training videos so students, athletes, coaches, and parents can learn the sport of adaptive track and field.
