We are a Paralympic Sport Club of Eastern Iowa and our mission is to provide inclusive sport and recreational activities to individuals of all ages, with and without physical disabilities and visual impairments, throughout eastern Iowa. We pledge to educate the community regarding the benefits of participation in physical activity for all persons with disabilities, and to advocate for their inclusion in all aspects of society.
“Life’s challenges are not overcome by one’s talent, but by one’s heart.” – Jack Eherenman
Benefits of inclusive adapted sports
The fitness and overall health improvements achieved through participating in these activities is huge. In a society where obesity has become a major health issue, the physical fitness advantages cannot be denied.
Inclusive adapted sports equip people of all ages with the tools to develop inner will, integrity, coping mechanisms, faith, confidence, and goals that will last for the rest of their life.
Through our programs participants will meet and develop relationships with people that share similar life experiences. This helps tremendously with creating healthy relationships that benefit both the participant now as well as future relationships.
By taking part in inclusive sports, participants soon begin to realize that they are far more capable than they originally thought. Challenged and able bodied athletes are brought together. This is all done through an idea that not long ago was unheard of.
Our program’s consist of year-round weekly sport practices, seasonal clinics, and annual camps.
