Let's Play! Find Fun Sports for People
with Disabilities and Special Needs
You can still play fun sports
if you have a disability or special need. There have never been more opportunities for people with disabilities or special needs to play sports.
Through increased awareness, there are now many options for people with disabilities and special needs. Some focus entirely on people with disabilities, while others are mainstream sports teams that either provide special events dedicated to people with disabilities and special needs or welcome people with disabilities and special needs into their mainstream programs.
