To provide national leadership and opportunities for individuals with disabilities to develop independence, confidence, and fitness through participation in community sports, recreation and educational programs.
Disabled Sports USA works to ensure that every person, regardless of ability, has an equal opportunity to participate in sports and recreation in their community.
Since 1967, Disabled Sports USA has provided opportunities for individuals with disabilities to develop independence, confidence, and fitness through participation in sports and recreation. What began as a program to pull Vietnam Veterans out of hospital beds and onto the ski slopes of California, has since grown into one of the nation’s largest multi-sport, multi-disability organizations. Now, through partnerships with 100+ community based chapters in 37 states, Disabled Sports USA provides year round programming in over 30 different sports, serving over 60,000 people each year.
