National Sports Center for the Disabled

The mission of the National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) is to enable the human spirit through therapeutic sport and recreation. To achieve this mission, the NSCD works to improve the lives of people with disabilities in two ways. First, the NSCD provides access to recreational and competitive adaptive sports in Colorado for people with all diagnoses, of all ability levels, and of all income levels. Second, the NSCD helps participants to achieve individual therapeutic goals that have a long-term impact on their health, skills, and independence. Founded in 1970, the NSCD offers therapeutic and adaptive sports programs in Grand County and the Denver metro area, Colorado. The NSCD's current programs include alpine and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, rafting, rock climbing, therapeutic horseback riding, air gun shooting, archery, cycling, adaptive work outs, camping, and the "NSCD Moves!" obstacle course.
