TIAS supports excellence in disability sports

Participating in sports activities is a great way of staying physically fit and socially connected. Unfortunately, a lot of people with a disability do not yet engage in sports & exercise. At Gehandicaptensport Nederland, we know the great impact that sport can have on people’s lives and we persistently work to make sure that people with a disability get the same opportunities to do sports as others, on all levels.

Our Paralympic athletes compete among the best in the world for medals in major championships. Striving for excellence is their daily habit and overcoming obstacles has become a routine. Our job is to create the environment in which they reach their full potential to shine on the international stage. But more importantly, these athletes are the living examples showing that by working hard and seizing opportunities, we can overcome our limitations.

We want to challenge the society to become more inclusive and provide equal opportunities to practice sports for everyone. Our projects focus on a variety of target groups and promote sports for people with a disability on all levels. We run try-out days, competitions, talent programs and educate coaches, professionals, and volunteers.

Every day, we strive for excellence in our work to create a better society for everyone.

Thanks for supporting us!
