AAASP Celebrates 25 Years Changing Lives

Atlanta, December 8, 2021 – As 2021 comes to a close this month, the American Association of Adapted Sports Programs, Inc. (AAASP) celebrates our 25th anniversary this holiday season of the American Association of Adapted Sports Programs (AAASP) bringing interscholastic wheelchair sports to students with physical disabilities.  Born out of the 1996 Atlanta Olympic games, AAASP is looking back proudly at our efforts over the last 25 years in getting these students off the sidelines and into the game. Since its inception in 1996, over 7000 student-athletes (from 2490 schools) have participated in nearly 2200 AAASP interscholastic wheelchair sports competitions. The AAASP cooperative approach with national, state, and local educational agencies, represents one of the most successful models for affording students with physical disabilities access to competitive sport.
