We don’t just provide adaptive sports and recreation opportunities in RVA --The reason Sportable exists is to transform the lives of people with physical and visual disabilities through sport! We know that is a bold claim and for some they might question whether we can really achieve that mission. Our responses—come meet our athletes, hear their story, watch them when they are in their “zone”, ask their parents, spouses, and children how active participation in sport has changed their lives. We can guarantee they would agree that in some way a transformation has occurred. This visionary approach to our mission allows us to keep pushing forward and aiming high—just as we ask of each of our athletes!
We have a strong set of values that guide the behavior of all those who work, play and compete at Sportable:
Integrity: Being true to our word and honoring commitments to athletes, partners and community.
Passion: committing to work hard, stay positive and encourage success in others.
Team spirit: the expectation that our community will enjoy a sport or activity for its own sake while upholding the highest standards of fairness, respect and camaraderie.
Ingenuity: fostering an environment where athletes and volunteers are able to reach their full potential.
