Piers Park Sailing Center
The Adaptive Sailing Program at Piers Park Sailing Center is a nationally recognized non-profit sailing program which has served over one thousand people with disabilities since the program’s inception in 2007. In 2009, US Sailing awarded PPSC as the Best Community Program for disabled sailors. In 2010, we were honored to be designated a Paralympic Sports Club.
PPSC’s program objectives are to empower our sailors with disabilities to realize their recreational goals using adapted teaching methods and a full array of adapted equipment. Our sailors tell us that while learning the important sailing skills, they are rewarded with a sense of confidence while being challenged by the sport of sailing.
Community Rowing is proud to provide state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, along with an amazing coaching staff, to bring a variety of adaptive rowing programs to youth and adults. CRI is an approved USOC Paralympic Sports Club and is a partner of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. We work with people who have a variety of physical and intellectual disabilities, and our staff works with each participant to determine how CRI can best meet their individual needs within the program.

Their programs allow individuals with disabilities to enjoy a boundary-free environment, enjoy outdoor recreation with friends and family, as well as provide access to equipment and instruction that might otherwise be unavailable.

JumpStart Physical Therapy & Sports Training
Success in athletics revolves around one’s ability to integrate speed, agility, core strength, and muscle endurance during practice and competition. JumpStart’s programs are scientifically designed with exercises and movements applicable to actual athletic activities. JumpStart is rare in their focus on prosthetics and gait. They have coached many amputees getting their start at running and know how to make sure the amputee is not hurting their joints or spine in the process.
