Adaptive Sports

About the Program 

The JAHVH Adaptive Sports Program was developed to provide active involvement in adaptive sports, outdoor recreation and fitness programs for our Veterans with disabilities.We believe adaptive sports & outdoor recreation activities are a vital part of the continued rehabilitation process for the Veterans we serve. Active participation in adaptive sports supports improvements in overall health, reduces risk of secondary medical complications, improves quality of life. The program provides opportunities to learn adaptive skills and be oriented to adaptive equipment for a variety of sports.  Partnerships with local and national sporting organizations help to offer ongoing programs throughout the year. We encourage all to 'Get Involved'!
