Welcome to Wasatch Adaptive Sports

Wasatch Adaptive Sports believes in the development of ability, independence and active living through recreation. We provide entry-level through advanced instruction of winter and summer recreational pursuits for individuals with adaptive needs and their families. Through personalized assessments and instruction, along with adaptive equipment, we work together to achieve your goals and experience the outdoors without limitations. Wasatch Adaptive Sports programs focus on increasing independence and mobility in a social environment.

Cycling Programs are here and will look a little different than usual. Please familiarize yourself with the added measures WAS is taking to mitigate the risks involved with COVID-19 during programming on the Program Registration page.
