THE STORY:

ACCESSPORTAMERICA INC wrote -

AccesSportAmerica, a national, non-profit founded in 1995, inspries higher function and fitness for children and adults of all disabilities through high-challenge sports and training.

AccesSportAmerica was founded by Executive Director Ross Lilley in 1995. At the time, Rev. Ross Lilley was the Minster at the South Acton Congregational Church in Acton, Massachusetts. Ross left his position in the summer of 2001 to devote his efforts full-time to AccesSportAmerica.

Prior to founding AccesSportAmerica, Ross had been adapting and teaching windsurfing for people with disabilities since 1984. A pioneer in adaptive equipment and training techniques, Ross serves as chief instructor and inventor for AccesSportAmerica so that windsurfing and other high-challenge water sports are possible for children and adults living with disabilities. AccesSportAmerica was the first to adapt the sport of windsurfing in the United States.

AccesSportAmerica first came to national attention when The Boston Globe reported on Ross and his son, Joshua born in 1985 with cerebral palsy and quadriplegia, windsurfing off the coast of Cape Cod. National coverage on ABC Good Morning America with Medical Editor Dr. Tim Johnson and in major windsurfing magazines soon followed.
