Dairyland Sports is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2017 with the purpose of engaging and empowering all individuals, regardless of physical ability or experience level, to be involved in adaptive sports.
OUR THREE PILLARS
We strive to advocate for the recognition and inclusion of all adaptive athletes in Wisconsin and throughout the Midwest. We work at the local, national, and international level to promote and support adaptive athletes in the pursuit of their individual fitness and athletic goals.
We work to provide educational opportunities to adaptive athletes, families, health professionals, and community members to highlight the value of adaptive sports in the health and well-being of individuals with diverse abilities. Each year, we provide service-learning opportunities to University of Wisconsin Doctor of Physical Therapy students to improve their knowledge, training, and experiences working with adaptive athletes.
We aim to be your "one-stop-shop" where you can find resources and instantly access quality adaptive sports opportunities in Wisconsin and across the Midwest. We support local and national adaptive sports clubs, teams, and events to provide adaptive athletes with the best opportunities to learn, train, and compete.
Dairyland Sports prioritizes the safety of our athletes, families, volunteers, and staff members above all else. We aim to create an environment that is safe and welcoming of all individuals, and we have taken additional steps to ensure this for our participants. For this reason, all Dairyland Sports staff and regular volunteers are required to receive awareness training and certifications through the US Center for SafeSport prior to participation in our organization. This training ensures that our staff and volunteers are appropriately trained to recognize, react, and respond to signs of athlete abuse or misconduct.
