*NubAbility Athletics Foundation exists to encourage, inspire and instruct limb- different children who are congenital or traumatic amputees by getting them out of the stands, off the bench and into the game! We believe all kids should have the opportunity to learn life through sport,regardless of how many limbs they might have. NubAbility has developed an all-volunteer team of over 60,accomplished adult limb-different-athletes, hailing from across the U.S. and other countries. These athletes coach and mentor the limb-different youth at our camps, clinics, online and beyond. Our cornerstone and most life changing events are our sport camps and clinics, held across the nation. These camps provide one-on-one and small group training for the limb-different-youth-athlete, by our coaches who have already walked in their shoes or “blades”. We have a large 4-day multi-sport camp held in the geographically central location of Du Quoin, in Southern Illinois. Over 150 limb- different kids and their families attend from nearly every state and we even have international participants. Our coaches instruct in adaptive skills & techniques in over 15 sports to prepare limb-different youth to COMPETE in MAINSTREAMED school sports. We also serve kids interested in the outdoors man school sports with NubAbility Outdoors events.

Additionally, NubAbility Athletics achieves awareness, inspiration and adaptive sport instruction by utilizing social networking, website, print materials, and instructional videos that inform and educate. We also help NubAbility kids get the adaptive tools and prosthetics needed to compete. We have partnered with the Minnesota Twins, St. Louis Cardinals and other organizations to reach more kids to serve. Finally, NubAbility has motivational and positive self-image, ANTI-BULLY programs called PE Teach Reach and #BeStrong (Not Bullied). We immerse our Limb-different Coach Athlete Ambassadors into school PE programs to spend the day playing PE with the students and/or present a motivational assembly in a variety of venues. We intend to take the “bully target” off of kids’ backs! We believe in the power of MENTORING. We have seen it change lives since we began in November of 2011. Contact us for further information:
