Core Values

Embodied ways of knowing
We believe that living with an impairment is best understood by those living with an impairment. They are the experts.

We believe we are only as strong as our relationships—within our team, with our partners, and with our members.

We believe more can be accomplished in partnership than alone.

We believe that sharing our insights and perspective can provoke new ways of thinking, spark discussion, and inspire action.

We believe that asking questions and learning from others allows us to constantly improve and grow.

Adapted Physcial Activity and Para Sport development and opportunities should be available to all who choose to participate.
