About the National Sports Center for the Disabled

WE ARE COLORADO’S MOST COMPREHENSIVE PROVIDER OF ADAPTIVE OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES. WE OFFER MORE PROGRAMS, IN MORE PLACES, IN MORE WAYS THAT CHANGE LIVES.

The National Sports Center for the Disabled is a world leader in creating and providing adaptive outdoor recreation experiences. As one of the largest and most comprehensive providers of adaptive experiences, we use the power of innovation, recreation and Colorado’s great outdoors to improve access, opportunities and possibilities for people living with disabilities.

Our exhilarating adaptive outdoor experiences help participants make the very most of their passion, their talents and their aspirations. They discover a renewed sense of confidence, reignite the pure joy of play, and find motivation to try new things, meet new people and believe in their own abilities. With industry-leading adaptive equipment, renowned coaches, instructors and volunteers and unmatched mountain and metro programs, we change the perceptions of athletes of all levels and help them, and the world, #RethinkAbility.

“From the first time we helped 23 amputees learn to ski in Winter Park, Colorado, we’ve been shattering pre-conceived notions and dispelling stereotypes.” – Paul Saarela , NSCD Equipment Supervisor
