National Sports Center for the Disabled
The National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) began in 1970 providing ski lessons for children with amputations for the Children’s Hospital of Denver. Based out of Winter Park Resort and Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the NSCD is one of the largest outdoor therapeutic recreation agencies in the world. Each year more than 3,000 children and adults with disabilities participate in our programs to learn more about sports and themselves. With specially trained staff and volunteers, and its own adaptive equipment lab, the NSCD teaches a variety of winter and summer sports and activities to individuals with almost any physical, cognitive, emotional or behavioral diagnosis.
