National Sports Center for the Disabled

Mission

The National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) began in 1970 as a one-time ski lesson for children with amputations for the Children's Hospital of Denver. Today, the NSCD is one of the largest outdoor therapeutic recreation agencies in the world. The mission of the NSCD is to enable the human spirit through therapeutic sport and recreation. Each year, thousands of children and adults with disabilities take to the ski slopes, mountain trails and rivers to learn more about sports - and themselves. With specially trained staff and its own adaptive equipment lab, the NSCD teaches a variety of winter and summer sports and activities to individuals with almost any physical, cognitive, emotional, or behavioral diagnosis.
