BlazeSports: The US Disabled Athletes Fund, Inc. (USDAF) and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) launched a national community-based sports program for persons with physical disability. M-NASR and NSSRA are among nine charter programs across the country named BlazeSports Clubs of America charter members. The program is modeled after the pilot developed in the State of Georgia by USDAF following the 1996 Atlanta Paralympic Games. BlazeSports will initially focus on select sports for the Paralympic Games (Swimming, Wheelchair Tennis, Track & Field, Wheelchair Basketball and Wheelchair Rugby). Other events, such as winter sports, may be added in the near future. BlazeSports will provide opportunities for children (7 years and up) and adults with physical disabilities to experience the benefits of participating in organized adaptive sports at the "grass-roots" level. The programs and services provided in the BlazeSports Clubs are designed to help athletes learn and improve their skills in adaptive sports, and enhance fitness, strength, self-confidence and lifestyle. If you are seven years or older with a physical disability or you are an individual interested in becoming a committee member for M-NASR / NSSRA BlazeSports Club, please call the NSSRA Manager of Cooperative Programs at (847) 509-9400 and join our team!
