About GLASA

GLASA's motto is to "Let No One Sit on the Sidelines."

We believe that the quality of life should never be limited by a physical or visual disability. We believe that it is possible to improve health, remove boundaries, elevate expectations, fulfill dreams, enhance self-worth and empower individuals with disabilities through participation in sport and wellness programs.

GLASA offers over 1,100 hours of programming each year and provides youth, adults and injured military veterans with the chance to participate in sports like; archery, boccia, cycling, goalball, golf, judo, kayaking, power soccer, softball, scuba diving, sled hockey, snow skiing, swimming, table tennis, tennis, track and field, water skiing, weight lifting, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair football, yoga and others.

GLASA also offers peer mentoring, outreach, nutrition education, equipment lending and so much more. GLASA's programs have an impact:

95% of program participants increase overall health and wellbeing

93% increase self-confidence

85% reduce their social isolation

89% engage in nationally recomended amounts of physical activity

91% improve overall strength and endurance

70% improve their knowledge of nutrition and make better food choices

Our participants have said:

“Since I have been with GLASA, I have not been depressed and lonely. I have a lot more friends now. I now know there are no obstacles that I cannot overcome, even with a disability. –Samantha, age 15”

“…it lets them, and us, know that they are truly alive and deserve to have all the same rights, benefits, activities and exercise opportunities as non-disabled folks.” --Grandparent of youth participant

“This team has allowed me to once again feel invincible and that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to”. --JJ, Adult Athlete
