Sports for the Physically Disabled was formed in September 1986, by a dedicated
group of parents who wanted their children to be able to participate in sports. Recreational and competitive opportunities are
provided in adapted sports including boccia, track and field, sledge hockey,
wheelchair basketball, as well as a multi-sports program. These programs promote the development of
teamwork, confidence, independence as well as the social interaction of being a
part of a sports organization.
Sports has since evolved into one of the largest sports organizations for people
with physical disabilities. Boasting
well over 125 members, the organization is 100% volunteer driven and is overseen
by a twelve person board of directors.
Due to the organization’s sheer size and athletic diversity, Cruisers Sports
is one of the most recognizable brands in the adapted sports community.
Cruisers Sports athletes and coaches have risen to the pinnacle of their respective
sports, representing the organization and country at national and international
sporting events including the National Championships, Parapan Am Games, World
Championships and the Paralympics.
