DiscAbilities; empowerment through non-contact, co-educational activities!










Millions of people have played Frisbee, but did you know that for more than 35 years flying discs have also been playing a more important role? Many flying disc sports and games offer opportunities for fun and important physical exercise.

In collaboration with NYC’s Hunter College & Easter Seals “Project HAPPY”, NYC Parks & Recreation, NYC Public Schools, DiscAbilities has been applying specially designed disc activities to benefit many people including: at-risk youth and people of all ages with physical, developmental challenges including people on the autism spectrum.

Because flying discs come in so many sizes and materials (large, small, soft cloth, etc., even some that make noise) they are especially appropriate for people with growing bodies, or who have challenges of almost any type.

People from age 3 to 83 enjoy enhanced coordination and dexterity while building self-confidence and social skills. Some people who have found it difficult to succeed or even participate in many traditional sports, enjoy the thrill of success and a boost to their self esteem. We promote the importance of teamwork and having fun as the most valued prize.
