There is a purpose behind the activities that are specifically targeted to each athlete.

Training sessions not only focus on strength and conditioning, gross motor skills, and body awareness but also, assists individuals in coping with the stress of a disability and prepares them for managing their life so, they may achieve and maintain optimal levels of independence, productivity, well-being, and quality of life.
