Everyone is invited to participate in this free event. No matter what level of ability - able-body, amputee, spinal cord injury, MS, or CP – everyone can get in a wheelchair to participate in a fun-filled day to help bring awareness, inclusion, and excitement to the Santa Clarita community.

Organizers will have extra sports wheelchairs and equipment for participants to use, and there will be coaches and clinic instruction to teach new players how to play the games. A lunch will be provided for all athletes.

Triumph Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire individuals with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) to triumph over their disabilities and to keep moving forward with their lives by pushing themselves to get better every day. 

Wheelchair Sports Day is located at the Santa Clarita Sports Complex Gymnasium at 20870 Centre Pointe Parkway in Canyon Country.
