A History of Success

Screenshot (342).png

Dairyland Games is Wisconsin's first and only multi-sport competition for individuals with physical disabilities that is sanctioned by the national leader in adaptive sports - Move United. Dairyland Games is Wisconsin's premiere event allowing athletes with physical disabilities to qualify for Move United Nationals, the largest, long-standing annual multi-sport event in the United States for youth and adults with a physical, visual, and/or intellectual impairment who are classifiable under the International Paralympic Committee’s classification system. The Dairyland Games was originally established to provide an opportunity for local Wisconsin athletes to compete and qualify for Junior Nationals, but the ultimate goal is to increase awareness, availability, and accessibility to adaptive sports in Wisconsin and across the Midwest.

The inaugural Dairyland Games was hosted in 2016 at Sauk Prarie High School and saw 16 athletes compete in various track & field events - setting the stage for a tremendous adaptive sports movement in Wisconsin and across the Midwest. 

 

Just 3 years later in 2019, the Dairyland Games proudly hosted over 75 athletes for a 3-day competition at Middleton High School, with representation from 8 different states across the Midwest! The 2019 Dairyland Games offered events in track, field, and swimming and saw over 350 event entries in total. In addition, free exhibition clinics were offered in para taekwondo, wheelchair basketball, and para cheer with the help of community partners and vendors across the state of Wisconsin. Finally, adults over the age of 22 were eligible to compete in the "adult open" division in an effort to maximize participation in adaptive sports across the lifespan and to support the dreams of Paralympic hopefuls.

In 2024, our goal is to host over 100 athletes from 8 states across the Midwest at Dairyland Games, and we hope you can join us! No matter your background, experience level, or physical ability, we welcome you to join for a weekend of friends, fun, and fierce competition!
