Wintergreen Adaptive Sports names Dave Shreve new executive director


Dave Shreve has been named executive director of Wintergreen Adaptive Sports, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation whose mission is to improve the lives of people with disabilities through outdoor sports and recreation.

Dave-Shreeve-WAS-Exec2As the full-time executive director Shreve will oversee day-to-day operations, supported by a staff of five part-time seasonal employees.  WAS mission is implemented through volunteers and the organization is governed by a 16-member board of directors.

Most recently, Shreve was an economic policy consultant and former professor of economic history at the University of Virginia, where he held a joint appointment at the Miller Center of Public Affairs and the Department of History.  He is active member of several Central Virginia non-profit boards of directors.  Ever unable to retire his baseball spikes or his favorite Marucci wooden bat, he continues to roam centerfield for The Brewers in the Charlottesville Men’s Baseball League.

WAS has a highly trained, compassionate staff and volunteer corps who are aided by an ingenious array of adaptive snow sport and boating equipment.  Students overcome blindness, paraplegia, cognitive disorders and traumatic brain injuries to experience the thrills of athletic endeavors.

Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, next to the slopes of wintergreen resort and adjacent to Wintergreen’s beautiful Lake Monocan, WAS offers fun, exhilaration and the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends. Students cover a broad spectrum of ages and disabilities and over the past 17 years has operated according to the mantra, “from the top of our mountain, all you can see is possibility.”
