ADF Paralympic Sports Program
The ADF Paralympic Sports Program is a clinical rehabilitation program which uses adaptive sport to optimise functional independence, physical fitness and to promote postive self-image and self esteem.
It supports all serving ADF members with an acquired disability to adopt an active lifestyle, regain their physical fitness and participate in adaptive sport right through to elite Paralympic sport. The use of sport in rehabilitation has proven psychological benefits such as improved self image, self esteem, leadership, camaraderie and quality of life.
The ADF delivers these services through a strategic partnership with the national governing body for Paralympic sport in Australia, the Australian Paralympic Committee.
