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.
