February 05, 2016
 
Submitted By: Adaptive Sports USA

On January 1st, 2016, Wheelchair & Ambulatory Sports USA introduced the new name and brand of the national organization as Adaptive Sports USA. Founded in 1956 as the National Wheelchair Athletic Association (NWAA), the organization has now progressed to serving as a comprehensive competitive sports organization for individuals of all ages with physical disabilities.

Adaptive Sports USA focuses on the sports of archery, athletics (track and field), powerlifting, shooting, swimming and table tennis. An infrastructure is in place to support each sport through a National Technical Committee or National Governing Body representative as well as a  regional representative per sport covering eastern, central and western states. These representatives have expertise in coaching and/or program and event development and are available to assist the chapter member, athletes, and the general public.

Additional information about Adaptive Sports USA can be found on the new web site at  http://www.adaptivesportsusa.org
