Annual basketball clinic hosted by UCSF Orthotic and Prosthetic Centers and led by the Warriors Basketball Academy and the AMP1 Basketball Team.

The Adaptive Community Training (A.C.T.) Program hosted a complimentary adaptive basketball and mobility clinic this April at Bakar Fitness Center at UCSF Mission Bay.  

This annual basketball clinic is hosted by the UCSF Orthotic and Prosthetic Centers and led by the Warriors Basketball Academy and the AMP1 Basketball Team.

Our clinic teaches fundamentals of the game in a supportive team environment and is designed to focus on skill development and mobility for those affected by physical impairments while encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle. "Participants of all activity levels and experience are always encouraged to attend" says A,C,T, Program Director, Nicole Henry, CPO, UCSF Orthotic and Prosthetic Center at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.  
Nicole goes on to explain, "The training is not focused on a particular level of amputation. We even have participants attending who have neuromuscular conditions, as opposed to amputations. For the kids, the event is typically more about having fun and being surrounded by others who also have amputations or physical challenges."  

Attendees came from all over Northern California including the greater Bay Area, Camp Winning Hands, Challenged Athletes Foundation, UCSF Pediatric Limb Lengthening and Complex Reconstruction Center, Palo Alto VA, San Francisco VA and the UCSF Medical Center.

The AMP1 Basketball Team is comprised of amputee athletes who connected while seeking opportunities to play competitive stand-up basketball.  AMP1 demonstrates that all you need is courage, motivation, and heart to follow your dreams.

Troy Druppal, Warriors Basketball Academy coach and AMP1 player who has consistently attended the event and is an upper extremity amputee himself, created this popular workout video at a prior UCSF A.C.T. camp held at the Warriors Basketball Academy facility in Oakland, CA.  It is used as a popular guide year-round and for those attendees who cannot attend our event in person.  

UCSF Adaptive Community Training (A.C.T.) Program creates opportunities for people with physical challenges to learn and connect while engaging in a variety of activities aimed at helping them achieve their goals. The ACT program allows us to extend rehabilitation outside of the traditional clinical setting in an effort to maximize people’s physical and functional mobility.
