Adaptive Sports & Fitness

Burke Rehabilitation Hospital encourages people of all abilities to take part in physical activities such as sports and exercise. Through our Therapeutic Recreation department, Burke offers several adaptive sports and fitness programs. These sports can be played by people with a disability, including physical and intellectual disabilities.

Many of these sports and fitness programs are based on existing sports and simply modified to meet the special needs of those with a disability. Adaptive sports such as the First Swing Golf Clinic foster a sense of inclusion to many who otherwise would not participate in the sport.

For people interested in learning more about taking part in adaptive sports, Burke hosts a number of seminars throughout the year to learn more. These can include explanations on what adaptive sports are, where they are available, how people can take part, and the benefits of staying active through sports.

Check Burke's community calendar for future adaptive sports seminars or contact the Therapeutic Recreation department at (914) 597-2248 or by email at TR@burke.org.

To participate, a registration form must be completed and submitted to the therapeutic recreation department.
