OUR GOALS

Since 2007 Paradox Sports has helped grow climbing opportunities nationally for people with disabilities through the Adaptive Climbing Initiative and annual world-class rock and ice climbing trips. In Spring 2019, we worked collaboratively with the Paradox Sports Board of Directors, staff, and community members to draft our Strategic Plan (2020-2022). This plan will guide our goals, strategies and objectives for the next three years, in the interest of increasing program impact and individuals served.

OUR VISION

Paradox Sports envisions a world with access to adaptive opportunities, which empowers individuals, builds communities, and honors that fact that ability does not prevent opportunity.

OUR VALUES

Paradox Sports recognizes the power of community engagement, personal growth, compassion, dignity, having fun, and irreverence for those who say we can’t.
