About Us

We are game changers

Friends of Stowe Adaptive Sports is a Vermont-based non-profit founded in 2010 on the belief that access to sports and recreational programs are a powerful means for people with disabilities to develop independence as well as physical and mental well-being. We focus on getting people out and having fun. We value the effect our programs have on entire families.

Our Mission is to improve the quality of life for persons with disabilities living in or visiting Vermont by sponsoring participation in adaptive sports and recreational programs. We work cooperatively with our partner organizations to enhance their ability to deliver a quality experience to persons with disabilities.

We further our mission through three activities:

  • Providing scholarships to Vermont residents living with permanent disabilities that fund programs offered through our partner organizations;
  • Providing grants to support advanced training to adaptive coaches affiliated with our partner organizations;
  • Providing specialized adaptive equipment.
