We provide recreational, social, and athletic opportunities for people with physical disabilities along with their friends and families.
Specially trained Adaptive Recreation staff and volunteers are committed to each participant’s success in reaching his or her specific goals.
Adaptive Recreation is sports and recreation opportunities for people with physical disabilities but open to all. It is different from our Specialized Recreation program where they cater to people with all types of disabilities – specifically people with intellectual disabilities.
Community volunteers fill a number of roles within the Adaptive Recreation program. What are your skills and interests? We’d love to help you find a way to get involved.
- Office/ Admin Assistance
- Event Support
- Practice Support
- Mechanics/ Welders
- Photography/ Videography
Our Adaptive Recreation program exists in part thanks to generous gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations.

Lane Talmadge Scholarship
This fund was created by Specialized Recreation in Lane Talmadge’s memory and exists thanks to continued donations from Lane’s friends and family. Lane loved theater, movies, puppet shows, music, trips and outings with best friend, Doug. And now Specialized Recreationi participants can enjoy activities as he did. The maximum award per participant is $50 per calendar year. This amount can be used all at once, or can be distributed across multiple courses.
