Before Greater Buffalo Adaptive Sports, there was the Sled hockey Foundation, the original 501(c)(3) started by Norm Page after his son Adam began playing sled hockey as a child. After years of creating sled hockey programs, Norm and his family decided that the community was in need of other adaptive sport offerings.
Greater Buffalo Adaptive Sports was formed to provide adults and children with physical, developmental, and intellectual disabilities with the opportunity to participate in sports, make friends, and grow. Now, we offer a variety of programs, always looking to expand and to serve a new group of athletes.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, we rely on grants and donations to maintain our equipment such as sleds, sports wheelchairs, helmets, gloves, and sticks, as well as the travel expenses for regional and national tournaments. This money goes directly to support our adaptive athletes with the goal of using sports to positively change their lives. If you are interested in participating in one of our programs or would like to inquire about sponsoring an athlete/program please contact Norm Page.
