The other day while at the Orthotics office with my son, I noticed and grabbed a magazine called Play2Podium. It states it’s a magazine for special needs families. This was a free sample copy of the Winter 2011 edition.
While going through it I found some great information on sports for people with disabilities to participate in. I did some more looking and found some more sites! I’ve bookmarked all the ones I have found so far into one folder and will certainly keep them handy when I hear of others looking for something to get involved in.
I wanted to share them with you. Some will fall into the winter sports and as you know, winter will be here soon enough!

I will add more as I come across them, but I think we’ve got a good start here!
Looking to volunteer? Each of these sports I’m sure welcome volunteers! Contact the sites for more information on volunteering and/or if you have questions about the sport.
Till next time…
