Adaptive Sports & Inclusive Recreation Initiative

The primary goals of the Michigan Adaptive Sports and Inclusive Recreation Initiative (ASIRI) are to increase awareness about, knowledge of, access to, and participation in adaptive sports and fitness among children with and without disabilities in the public school system. Our goal is to embed adaptive sports and inclusive recreation as part of the physical education curriculum in Michigan public schools. This initiative aims to support the wellness and quality of life of people with disabilities and create inclusive opportunities for people with and without disabilities to come together.

Adaptive Fitness

A core component of our program is getting more people aware about and engaged in physical and recreational activity that is adaptive and accessible for persons with disabilities. Physical activity is essential for everyone to live a healthy life physically, socially, and emotionally as it offers people the ability to derive a sense of purpose in life. Therefore, we place great importance not just on supporting and developing athletes, but on supporting people in becoming the best version of themselves as an individual, student, professional, and athlete.
