Our Youth Programs
“I Can Do Anything!” is the name of our youth programming at Disabled Sports USA, and we strongly believe that children with disabilities CAN DO ANYTHING. Our youth programs help show youth, their parents, family and friends, and the general public that having a disability does not prevent kids from playing and excelling at sports. Year-round adaptive sports programs are implemented through our nationwide chapter network, allowing youth from all parts of the country to get involved in adaptive sports. To find a program near you, please visit our event calendar.
Designed as a stepping stone for aspiring Alpine, Snowboard and Nordic racers, the E-team is a scholarship program for youth ages 13-25 designed to Elevate and Empower them to compete at the best of their ability. Racers on the E-team are provided with support for training and competitions.
