Sports & Recreation


Participation is physical activities is essential to prevent people with disabilities from surrendering themselves to confinement.  

Encouraging our members to stay healthy, active and engaged through sports and recreation is a primary mission of the Kentucky - Indiana Chapter. We provide access to a variety of local, regional and national adaptive sports programs.  

In addition to sports, the chapter organizes recreational and social activities each month throughout the year. Our programs are provided at no or low cost to life and affiliate members.  Adaptive equipment is available for use during each of our sporting programs at no cost. 

Individual Sporting Grants are available for members that wish to pursue a sport or activity that is not offered by the chapter, or for those who prefer to be active in their local area.

Each year, we proudly sponsor a team of members to attend the nation's largest annual wheelchair event...The National Veterans Wheelchair Games.
