Originally known as the Research and Training Centre for Athletes with Disabilities, The Centre was founded by Dr. Robert Steadward in 1978. It was originally developed to provide athletes with physical disabilities and their coaches, with technical information in the areas of sport, fitness and training. The Centre also provided a well-equipped training facility for the athletes.
