The Sports Therapeutic and Adaptive Recreation (STAR) Association is a non-profit organization that provides individuals with disabilities the opportunity to learn, practice and compete in Paralympic and adaptive sports and recreation.

In spring 2021, the STAR Association hosted two educational Adaptive Sports Clinics and five summer programs.  At these events, participants received instructional hands on training  by former paralympians and experts from around the nation in the sports of Adaptive Track and Field and Wheelchair tennis.  These educational events gave the foundational and introductory skills for the summer programs offered by the STAR Association.

The Fall of 2021 brought addditional growth to the programming offered by the STAR Association. We offered Wheelchair Basketball, the first opportunity to play the "Graddaddy" of Para Sports in the region.  We will also offer Power Soccer the only sport specifically designed for power chair users.  And we were pleased to offer "Adaptive Sports Leagues" for elementary, middle school, High school and for Adults.

Stay tuned to see the new programs we will be adding in 2022 !  Wheelchair La Crosse, Wheelchair Football and our first disease specific programs for Parkinsons Disease.

In order for these programs to take place, ongoing sponsorships and cooperation from local entities are necessary.  Your support can be through gives in-kind or monetary sponsorships.  Not only will you be contributing to these events, and ongoing programs but your company will benefit from through exposure to a diverse community of individuals  and families.

We appreciate your support and look forward to answering any questions you may have.  Contact us at [email protected] or call (608)-317-6719.
