Our Programs

Find Your
Superpower

Mentor Program

No superhero is born with a cape – they all need a mentor to learn to unleash their power.

Sisters in Sports Foundation pairs women with disabilities with seasoned participants in their area to serve as mentors. Our mentors range from active passionate women who have excelled in their sport to Paralympic Medalists who have trained in a sport and dedicated their lift to mastery.

Explore your Passion
Scholarship Program

The Explore Your Passion Scholarship fund is developed to encourage women and girls with disabilities to try new things, push their limits, and find activities that awaken their soul. The program provides financial support for women looking to purchase equipment, explore programming, take their training to a new level, or sponsor athletes interested in competing at an international level.

Champion Your Voice

Learn to Champion your Voice. Whether you are engaging in sport for health and fitness or competing in international competition, one of the most important things we can do as a collective community is learn to effectively advocate for ourselves, and come together to create a collective voice to institute change for women of the future, but most importantly for ourselves.

Founders’ Note

I saw a need to create opportunities for women and girls. Helping Them Live The Impossible. As an adaptive athlete, I have seen what the power of sport and community can do to change lives. It is even more important for women with disabilities to reach their full potential.

“I want to contribute and see women thrive with a disability.” – Danelle Umstead, SIS Founder
