Volleyball

Adaptive volleyball is attractive to all types of players, young and old.  To play volleyball players need to acquire a few basic skills, learn a few rules, and then they are ready to play the game anywhere from the gym to the beach.

Swimming

Adaptive swimming is one of the most popular sports in the world. Unlike other sports, swimming is a life skill that is taught, first, to ensure safety and, secondly, for sports and competition purposes.

Bowling

Adaptive bowling is a particularly beneficial sport to people with intellectual disabilities, irrespective of their age or sports abilities, since it ensures physical exercise and at the same time participation and social integration.

Basketball

Adaptive basketball is one of the top sports for people with disabilities. Players take it up at all ages and at all abilities.
