Veteran Adaptive Sport Programs

WebBanner_RacingChair Cropped

BlazeSports provides veterans with physical disabilities and injured active duty service members with training, support, and opportunities to become active and healthy all year long. Whether you want to compete, try something new or stay fit our programs have something for everyone.  No previous experience is needed for any of our programs.

We believe that sport and recreation are integral to the community reintegration process, post injury. Our programs promote inclusion and encourage the participation of family members and friends alongside the athlete.
