Throughout this thesis, the author describes the need for a professional association for people that work in the adaptive sports field. The author justifies this need through a review of the literature surrounding adaptive sports, what is currently available to professionals, as well as survey of adaptive sports professionals. Through this thesis project the author completed the needs analysis and the foundational work to start a professional association for individuals that work in the adaptive sports field.
