Paralympic Experience

The Paralympic Experience is an excellent way to introduce Paralympic sports to people with disabilities. The goal of the program is to show individuals with physical disabilities how participation in sports and living a healthy, active lifestyle can have a profoundly positive impact on their lives.


Sponsored by Kean University in collaboration with Children’s Lightning Wheels and North Jersey Navigators, the Paralympic Sport Club provides individuals with a physical disability, ages 7 and up, an opportunity to learn more about sports and to work with experienced coaches in various hands-on adaptive sports.
