About ASPO

Learn our Past and Become our Future.

The Adaptive Sports Program of Ohio (ASPO) is a nonprofit organization established to promote the health and wellness of individuals with physical disabilities. Here, we provide competitive and recreational adaptive sport opportunities throughout Ohio.

ASPO offers ten sports programs in Ohio, and has partnered with the U.S. Olympic Committee to launch Paralympic Sport Ohio.

We’re headquartered in Wooster, Ohio; however, we have active programming in Cleveland, Akron, Columbus, Toledo, Youngstown and more.

Dream. Excel. Inspire.

DREAM is the introductory level of our programming where we host adaptive sport clinics and presentations to educate individuals with and without disabilities, healthcare professionals and school staff on the importance of being physically active despite having a physical impairment.

The EXCEL program helps adaptive athletes shine in their sport of choice. Excel is accomplished through regular practices, competitions/tournaments, and yearly sport specific training camps.

INSPIRE. This mentoring program pairs athletic ambassadors to people with disabilities and engages them in adaptive sports. It also inspires the community as a whole to view individuals with disabilities in a positive light.
