With this initiative, we promote the adoption or implementation of strategies proven to work and produce positive results for students and schools.

FREE NFHS Course: Coaching Adapted Sports

Interscholastic students with physical disabilities have specific needs, which could prevent them from enjoying the positive experiences available to other students who participate in athletics and team sports. That's why the National Federation of State High School Associations, in partnership with the American Association of Adapted Sports Programs, is proud to bring you Coaching Adapted Sports.

In this course, you will learn how to create adapted sports teams at your school or in your school district. You'll hear from others who coach and participate in adapted sports, and you'll find specific and helpful information about the kinds of sports, skills and drills available for coaching students with physical disabilities.
