Nebraska Adaptive Sports provides athletic opportunities for disabled children and adults. These opportunities include instruction, team organization, practice facilities, athletic equipment, registration fees, uniforms, travel expenses, team and individual awards, and much more.
There are many benefits associated with participation in wheelchair athletics. These include aerobic and muscle-building activities, building self-esteem, making life-long friendships, and travel to play teams from other areas. Also, many of our members have participated on the United States Paralympic Team and have had opportunities for international travel. Several of our members have received college scholarships through wheelchair athletics.
Current programs include:
1. Wheelchair Softball – adults and youth
2. Wheelchair Basketball – youth
3. Sitting Volleyball – adult
4. Quad Rugby – adult
5. Goalball – adult & youth
