Our History

AbilityPLUS Adaptive Sports was founded in 1997 by a small group of volunteers who were inspired by the awesome achievements of the participants of all ages with physical or developmental disabilities.

Today, with the help of our partner programs and hundreds of volunteers, we have provided thousands of adaptive sports lessons for people with disabilities who, along with their families and friends have experienced the joy of inclusion in mainstream recreational activities.

AbilityPLUS serves a diverse population of individuals, from people with severe physical disabilities to people with autism, across the spectrum. AbilityPLUS programs are open to everyone. We teach and work with people regardless of their age, disability or financial constraints.

Since our founding in 1997, programs have grown from working with a handful of families and individuals to providing thousands of program lessons to hundreds of families and individuals each year. We have year round adaptive programs, lessons and events.  AbilityPLUS offers year round programs.  In the winter, join us for alpine, nordic, snowboard and snowshoe lessons.  During the warmer weather, participants enjoy hiking, cycling, canoeing and more.  All lessons and programs operate out of the Mount Washington Valley of New Hampshire with partnership and affiliate programs throughout New England.
