Mission and History

MISSION

To provide statewide leadership in the planning, promotion, education and organization of sports and recreation opportunities for Iowans with physical disabilities 

VISION

Improve the quality of life for all Iowans with a physical disability through consistent recreational opportunities. 

HISTORY

Adaptive Sports Iowa was created out of the need for specific sports programs for those that are physically disabled in Iowa. Our organization was the brainchild of current Director Mike Boone and his wife, Joni.

Having seen the difficulties faced by his blind father throughout his life, Mike grew his passion for adaptive sports programming as a ski instructor in Colorado. Upon moving to Iowa, he found that there was a lack of organized sports and recreational opportunities for those with physical disabilities. Mike and Joni created the Adaptive Sports Iowa concept, and with the help of various individuals, were able to kick off the new organization on March 8, 2011 as part of the Adaptive Sports Iowa Summit and Press Conference.

Since our beginning, we’ve opened many doors and provided new and inventive opportunities for Iowans with physical disabilities . We look forward to both enhancing and increasing the programs we offer, and hope that you’ll join us for one of our events soon!
