BORP offers year-round sports and recreation programs serving a wide variety of ages, interests and abilities. BORP’s Youth Sports Program offers year-round competitive and recreational sports activities for disabled children and youth ages 5-19, including wheelchair basketball, power soccer, Jr. Adventures, sled hockey, and handcycling.

Under the guidance of caring volunteer alumni, coaches and staff, young athletes build confidence, self-esteem and independence while developing lifetime fitness habits. Youth teams have opportunities for travel to local and national tournaments.

The Adventures & Outings Program provides disabled children, adults, and families with access to the many wonderful outdoor and urban attractions that the Bay Area has to offer, in a supportive and integrated environment. BORP offers weekly urban outings such as theater trips, museum tours, and art festivals as well as more adventurous outdoor excursions including guided walks and nature hikes on local blind and accessible trails, adaptive skiing trips, kayaking, rafting, and whale watching.

The Adaptive Cycling Program is an integrated program serving children, youth, adults and families. Non-disabled and disabled participants with mobility challenges and visual impairments participate together in organized group rides or they can just stop by the cycling center to ride on their own. With the support of our knowledgeable staff and dedicated volunteers, cyclists of all ability levels explore local Bay Area biking trails throughout the year using our large fleet of adaptive cycles, including tandems, hand cycles, recumbents, standard bikes and three-wheelers. Many participants train for BORP’s annual fundraising ride, The Revolution, which takes place in the fall in Sonoma wine country. Youth Sled Hockey
