TriState Adaptive Sports Association -TASA is a non profit organization that provides world class adaptive sports to all people with physical barriers. Studies have proven time and time again, people that lead active lifestyles are healthier mentally and physically. Our program will provide the following sports.
Archery – Our intention this year is to seek additional certified training for our instructors and participants. We will work closely with local agencies to find members and friends interested in joining our team. We plan to host and train new members in the sport, at least four times per year. We will assist those who wish to participate at a higher level by joining National Blind Archery and other sighted groups that can provide the training.
Bowling – Bowling has been one of our most popular events. We have developed relationships with other professional groups to strengthen the skills of our members. We will provide local competitions and assist members interested in perfecting their skills.
Cycling – Our intention is to continue growth of our tandem cycling program. We plan to offer at least two local riding events to assist our members in developing their skills. We will also continue to compete in national events. The Naval Support Unit 10 Nautical Mile Race will remain high on our list.
Goal Ball – Goal ball is an excellent sport for teaching individuals with visual impairments the skills of communication, accessibility and orientation and mobility. Our long term goals include hosting a local, state and national training camp. We will continue to work with the United State Association Blind Athletes, Challenge Athletes Foundation to develop a local team in the tristate area.
Adventure Sports – On demand, we will provide what we are calling adventure sports. These sports offer great team-building opportunities. Our intention is to continue building relationships with local schools, community centers and other agencies to get this community out and playing again. Some of the sports that we will offer are listed below:
