The American Association of Adapted Sports™ Programs, Inc. (AAASP, “asp”) is a Georgia-based nonprofit organization that builds interscholastic sports leagues for students with physical disabilities or visual impairments in grades one through 12, comparable to programs commonly available only to students without disabilities.

AAASP serves as the governing body and athletic association for these sports programs. Within this role, AAASP develops and operates statewide league programs and has developed a comprehensive training and certification infrastructure for AAASP coaches, officials, and coordinators, as well as for physical activity professionals nationwide.

Power wheelchairs are not permitted. This sport is one of three sports offered for all Elementary, Middle and High School Henry County Students who compete against other counties. The other sports are Football and Handball. The Henry Hurricanes are excited to be crowned the 2008 JV State Champions.

This partnership with Henry County Schools, the Henry YMCA and Henry County Parks & Recreation was made possible by a grant from American Association of Adapted Sports Programs (AAASP). Wheelchair Basketball is offered January – February, with practice beginning in December at Locust Grove Recreation Center.

Wheelchair Football is offered for manual and power chair users and is played in a gym with the same team concepts of teamwork, strategy and ball handling skills as traditional football with a few adaptations for wheelchair users such as two hand touch in lieu of tackling.
