About Us

Welcome to ASF Adaptive Sports NonProfit Organization

Action Sports Foundation was created from the ground up to not only be a great local organization, but to also be a resource for other groups of sports enthusiasts around the country to get involved in their own communities.

Being an organization driven by motivated volunteers allows us to make great strides in completing our mission and return maximum benefit to the community at very little overall cost. ASF community events and programs offer a continuous stream of volunteer opportunities for all age groups, and have proven to be a great catalyst to bring people in the community together.

Members of the ASF family have been active in action sports for most of their lives, primarily in skateboarding, BMX, and water sports. Our organization and our supporters are made up of athletes, coaches, and industry friends who are dedicated to providing adaptive sport opportunities in their communities
