Why "The Experience Zone?"
"The essence of sport intrinsically reflects inclusivity. Why? Because everyone can play. We don’t all play the same but that doesn’t matter - what matters is that we can play and it’s critical to our growth as human beings to play together. Sport has the power to shift narrow-mindedness to infinite possibilities." ~ Candace Cable - US Paralympian in 3 Sports, 12 Medals / Disability Advocate / Consultant for "Experience Zone".
We created the Experience Zone first and foremost for everyone to have FUN and PLAY! A place where socialization happens and connections are made. When we play together, empathy is created, and differences fade away. We believe this is one way to break down stereotypes and biases. The Experience Zone is “Inclusion with Purpose” where differences are celebrated - Come One, Come All!
At the Experience Zone you can responsibly attempt to play and navigate the mechanics of adaptive sports in a secure environment. After trying these activities for yourself at the Experience Zone, you can actually witness some of these competitive adaptive sports right here at the games.
By playing side by side and watching our athletes compete, we hope our spectators are energized and awakened to the transformative power of sport. Together we aspire to create allies and champions for ALL athletes!
