Empowering Lives Through Sports
Since World T.E.A.M.'s first inclusive program in 1987, our non-profit organization has used athletics to challenge adaptive men, women and children to accomplish goals they never thought possible.
We believe that “The Exceptional Athlete Matters.”
World T.E.A.M. brings adaptive and able-bodied athletes together by empowering, enabling and engaging individuals through inclusive athletic programs.
For more than 25 years, our organization has used athletics to challenge and empower men, women and children with disabilities to accomplish goals they never thought possible. In all our programs, from mountain climbing, cycling, white water rafting, and many other sports, we include both adaptive and able-bodied participants.
Serving a Diverse Population In Need
Approximately one in eight people in the United States have some form of a disability. This population includes over four million children and 14 million elderly, is spread almost equally between men and women, and includes people from all races.
Their ranks have swelled with more than 706,000 members of the American Armed Forces who live with service-related disabilities from their participation in the Global War on Terror that began in 2001. World T.E.A.M. is aware of the needs of these veterans and makes a special effort to provide exceptional opportunities for outdoor sporting challenges.
