World T.E.A.M. Sportschanges lives through sports. Since 1993, we have used athletics to challenge disabled men, women and children to accomplish goals they never thought possible. In all our events - whether mountain climbing, biking, white water rafting or many other sports - we include both disabled and able-bodied participants. Four things always happen at our events: Disabled participants build self confidence and physical fitness. The disabled provide a role model for other disabled citizens, encouraging them to take up physical activities. The disabled become a moving inspiration to other participants and to spectators when they see that disabled individuals can meet challenges beyond anyone’s imagination. The disabled and able-bodied participants learn to work as a team to overcome those challenges. We change lives through sports.
World T.E.A.M. Sports is more than an event and sports management organization--it is a movement to change the way the world perceives those with disabilities.
Built on the premise that "The Exceptional Athlete Matters," we bring together as athletes people of all cultures, with and without disabilities, to accomplish goals beyond what is thought possible. World T.E.A.M. Sports recognizes the global commonality of athletics and believes that through inclusive athletic events, we can educate about true human ability while affording those with disabilities challenging opportunities to realize their own abilities.
World T.E.A.M. Sports is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organized in the State of North Carolina and headquartered in Holbrook, New York. Support for the organization is received primarily through individual and corporate donations and sponsorships.
