Challenge Sports of California is a Sacramento Valley based organization serving the Special Needs community since 1997
As a 501(c) (3) Nonprofit, our volunteer organization provides year round team sports for school age athletes with developmental and/or physical disabilities. We offer soccer, basketball, bowling and trampoline in a safe, fun and positive environment.
Players learn basic skills in an athletic environment structured to their abilities while also learning valuable social skills working as a team. Our goal is to include kids, no matter their physical or developmental challenges, who otherwise would not be appropriate for inclusion in a typical sports league or club.
The Challenge Sports Directors believe we all want the same basic things: To be treated with kindness, to have the same opportunities to enjoy life, and to be regarded with respect and dignity.
Challenge Sports provides a safe environment for all of our players at each venue where we host our programs.
Because Challenge Sports does not allow for parents/ guardians to drop off their children during our events, there is always at least one parent/ guardian in the gym or on the field at all times.
All parents and volunteers are required to sign our Code of Conduct document to ensure a positive and safe haven during our program times. We also provide a volunteer orientation session for all volunteers to make sure that they fully understand the program and the athletes’ capabilities.
