ASN at Huntingdon College
The Ability Sport Network at Huntingdon College serves River Region youth and young adults with physical impairments, ages 6–21, who have a desire to participate in sport and adapted activity. The program teaches prerequisite sport skills that will allow youth to continue lifelong participation in organized sport or physical activities. Through participation in wheelchair basketball, wheelchair tennis, sit volleyball, and bocce, participants develop the confidence, work ethic, and leadership skills learned through team sports.
Our Ability Sport Network team, the Red Wings , welcomes new participants anytime!
In the ASN, we believe that inclusion and diversity serve as our core values. We believe that equal opportunity and access for sport and recreational activities can enhance the quality of life for all participants. We strive to form a cohesive community of student-athletes where self-acceptance and self-confidence are gained through team-building and sport participation.
Our purpose is to improve knowledge of and to promote the benefits of health-enhancing physical activity, social skills, and the importance of teamwork that can be gained through participation in sport.
Our Staff and Volunteers
Our coaches have educational experience in inclusive sport and physical education at Huntingdon College. ASN volunteers have completed an extensive application process, including background checks. The administrative staff have earned significant experience in inclusive sport, therapeutic recreation, and adapted activity.
