The Israel Sport Center for the Disabled is one of the world pioneers in the field of sports rehabilitation. The Center opened its gates in 1960 and specializes in the physical and psychological rehabilitation of children and youth. For more than fifty years, our remarkable staff and volunteers have encouraged the disabled to participate in a variety of sports activities and to benefit from the countless ways in which sports is healing.
The spirit and motivation of sport is used to help guide the disabled from a state of helplessness to productive, fulfilling lives. Sports activities contribute more to the confidence, morale, and self-image of the disabled than any other form of rehabilitation. For more than 50 years, the Center’s sports activities have proven to prolong life expectancy of the seriously disabled. Today, more than 3,000 kids and adults participate in 20 different sports activities without discrimination of religion, race, or ethnicity.
