Sports Center

One of the campus’ most popular venues, the National Sports Center for the Blind hosts activities that develop coordination along with confidence, skill, and team spirit. Housed within this facility is an indoor, heated swimming pool, an Olympic sports stadium, a well-equipped weight room, and additional space with specialized, state-of-the-art equipment for blind and multi-handicapped children and adults. There is truly something for everyone, with courses in judo, gymnastics, physiotherapy, basketball, swimming, and goal ball – a team sport designed especially for blind athletes, which has been a full part of the Paralympics since 1980.
