Adaptive Sports & Recreation

Sports and recreation opportunities are available for individuals with intellectual disabilities ages 6 and older residing in or outside of Mesa. The typical program will take place once per week for up to 12 weeks in a season.

The training schedule for each program is based on the competition schedules as determined by Special Olympics Arizona (SOAZ). Athletes have the choice whether or not to compete in the SOAZ competitions. If the athlete will compete in SOAZ competitions, a Medical & Consent Form must be completed by a physical and submitted to the City of Mesa office. The document is valid for three years from the date of the doctor’s and participant’s (or guardian’s) signatures. Athletes without an up-to-date Medical & Consent Form will not be allowed to participate in SOAZ competitions.
