Adapted sports provides an opportunity for sport and recreation programs for kids and teens with physical challenges. We currently offer two opportunities for athletes in Central Illinois: Peoria Wildcats wheelchair basketball and road racing.
Anyone who has a physical disability or impairment that may include but is not limited to amputations, muscle disorders, traumatic brain injury, stroke, spina bifida, and cerebral palsy.
Many of our athletes have disabilities that affect their lower body but they are able to walk. For some sports these athletes utilize a wheelchair to create an equal playing field.
HISRA has wheelchairs and other adaptive equipment for those interested in testing out a new sport.
Adaptive Athletics is for individuals with a primary physical disability only. Special Olympics is for those individuals with cognitive or mental impairments.
