Community Days

In our efforts to educate the community of the adaptations of sports and recreational activities, and the exceptional athletic abilities of those athletes that use them, TNABA hosts Community Days. These are events dedicated to showing our neighbors and friends through hands on experiences, what it is like to participate in sports through the eyes of a person who is blind or has low vision. Since this outreach program has started in 2011, we have had hundreds of participants in sports like Goalball, bowling, and Tandem Cycling. We invite you to check out one of these great experiences for yourself. Sign up your family, company, youth or church groups, athletic teams, or your group of friends for a great day outing.
