Аннотация: In this article, we analyze free-time sport for young people with disabilities in the Finnish context. Among youth, leisure is often spent with peers, and in this analysis, we pay attention to sports hob-bies as potential agendas for peer relations. We trace individual meanings that practitioners with disabilities give to sports they practice together with other young people with disabilities. We con-clude that in the context of disability sports, peer relations are often lived under the adult supervi-sion. Although possibilities of peer relations, that are seen to be a central part of youth, are rather constricted, disability sports strengthen readiness for coexistence, play and health.
