Disability-Inclusive Ice Skating

Adaptive Skating USA’s mission is to make for a more inclusive society by empowering individuals with disabilities

to transcend barriers and accomplish feats through the exhilarating and wellness-promoting activity of ice skating.


Benefits Of Our Program

Research proves daily physical activity raises self-esteem, develops peer relationships, enhances overall health and improves quality of life.  Ice skating is a beneficial physical activity for providing healthy exercise and enjoyment to people of all ages and abilities.

Adaptive Skating USA  provides access to a life-changing experience. We also provide scholarships that offset individual costs such as program fees, ice time, coaching, and adaptive equipment.

A huge THANK YOU to the directors and volunteer coaches at the Wollman Rink Skating School in NYC’s Central Park.
