CAF HS Adaptive Sports Program

Challenged Athletes Foundation’s High School Adaptive Sports Program aims to increase awareness of school parasport competition, provide coaching and instructional resources, and create training and grant opportunities for students with physical disabilities in both middle school and high school.

The High School Adaptive Sports Program is currently focused on the sport of adaptive track & field, but as more high schools embrace parasport, our goal is to develop additional resources to support other sports for student-athletes. CAF ultimately aims to provide a more inclusive school environment for aspiring adaptive athletes!

CAF Adaptive Track & Field Program

 

The CAF Adaptive Track & Field Program is designed to support both middle school and high school student-athletes with in-person and virtual coaching, resources, and grant opportunities so athletes can build the skills and confidence needed to join and excel on their school track & field teams. See below for more information.

 

Registration for our 2022 programs are coming soon!
