Our mission is to provide affordable inclusive physical and recreational activities that build health and confidence.
We are proud to be the founding chapter of Disabled Sports USA, the nation’s largest nonprofit, multi-sport and multi-disability organization. Today the national headquarters is located in Rockville, Maryland, and there are over 100 chapters serving more than 60,000 people nationwide.
Background: Founded in 1967, Disabled Sports USA Far West is dedicated to innovative programs that provide an environment with positive therapeutic and psychological outcomes. Individuals are empowered to reach their full potential. Our programs allow individuals of all abilities to discover their own strengths and interests.
With emphasis on safety, fun and learning, Disabled Sports encourages participation by individuals of all ages and abilities, including those with orthopedic, spinal cord, neuromuscular, visual and hearing impairments. Included, too, are those with cognitive and developmental disabilities.
Family Orientation: We believe that the family is the true heart of an integrated society. Therefore, we encourage the whole family to participate in many of our programs and activities. By uniting families through recreational activities, we strengthen the well being of the entire family while ending the isolation of individuals with disabilities.
