Supporting Adaptive Sports USA
Adaptive Sports USA has many ways to to support our organization. It is through the contributions of individuals, organizations, and corporate sponsors that we can make an impact in adaptive sports. Please consider the following ways to give and get involved.
Program partners provide financial resources for ongoing operations such as the Adaptive Sports USA chapter and athlete member network, equipment support, program delivery costs, outreach and awareness, and sport development.
Event sponsors provide funding to a specific event. In particular, we are seeking sponsorship for our signature events, Junior Nationals, and the National Conference and Delegate Assembly. In addition, we seek support for Adaptive Sports USAs delegation (Team USA) at the International Wheelchair and Amputee Sport Federation World Games and Junior World Games.
Our sanctioned events are operated by individual member organizations of Adaptive Sports USA. They seek support to cover costs of their athletic competitions, clinics, practices, and other athlete initiatives.

Event management often involves coordination of transportation, lodging, food and beverage, printing, officiation, classification, athlete recognition, and equipment.
