Adaptive Sports for Kids (A.S.K.) is a non-profit, 501-(c)(3) organization. A.S.K. was formed in December, 2011. Our goal is to give children and adults with special needs the opportunity to play sports they may not otherwise be able to play, all at no cost to them. Each athlete is partnered with a “buddy” volunteer who will help their athlete with whatever they need; whether it’s batting, running, pushing their wheelchair, or just playing in the dirt with them. This way all of our parents can sit down, relax, and watch their child play sports. If you would prefer to be your child’s buddy, that is ok with us too!

A.S.K. is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of parents of special needs children. Together we have many many many years of experience, and we LOVE what we do! We are strictly volunteer based, none of our Board of Directors receive a salary of any kind. They are simply paid by the smiles on our athlete’s faces!
