About Some Assembly Required

Team Some Assembly Required (SAR) is a 501C3 Non-Profit Organization, veteran founded and operated project comprised of adaptive athletes and their supporters dedicated to the growth and expansion of competitive adaptive sports across multiple disciplines. Founded by Dale King and Derick Carver, both of whom are former US Army officers, veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and CrossFit Affiliate owners.

Our focus is to educate adaptive athletes and the general population through the sponsorship, development and training of adaptive athletes.

Our athletes have shattered the limitations and expectations placed upon them by their ``disability`` and society through the participation in various competitive endeavors. Our goal is to enable and empower these athletes to act as ambassadors for Adaptive Sports by encouraging, educating and defying expectations at all levels.

We have witnessed the incredibly positive impact adaptive athletes can have upon society. We want to broadcast the message of ``always adapt, always overcome`` by enabling these athletes to participate and excel in fitness competitions, races, and sporting events.

TEAM SAR athletes and their families will gain confidence and independence, develop a sense of purpose, build self-esteem, meet positive role models and enjoy an enhanced quality of life through legitimate competition.

What we do

The Team SAR project organizes and prepares teams of adaptive athletes across America to compete in various athletic and sporting events. It is our fundamental belief that adaptive athletes need access to challenging levels of competition in order to gain a sense of confidence, independence, and purpose. By always adapting and always overcoming Team SAR sends out a strong positive message to all athletes that anything is possible. Team SAR facilitates this process by reaching out to organizers of functional fitness and athletic competitions and helping them program their events for adaptive athletes. Additionally, we work with adaptive athletes to provide funding, training, education, and expertise to prepare them for high level competitions. Our goal is not solely participation, we want our athletes to compete and do well.

Our athletes and these events are located across the country and we need your help to cover their travel expenses to get them there so we can broadcast the message to always adapt and always overcome. In the process we can start a revolution of inspiration across America.

No scaling, no modifications; straight up head to head competition. At the end of the day, Some  Assembly Required beat out 2 full bodied teams, a team missing combined over 6 limbs beat out 2 teams of full bodied athletes proving anything is possible.

Here are some media clips that covered last year’s Arnold:

On February 6th 2016, veteran and civilian athletes from TEAM SAR will gathered in Austin, Texas in order to train and develop unique shooting methods for adaptive athletes in challenging real world scenarios. They combined fitness and firearms training to learn the fundamentals of marksmanship specific to their adaptation.
