Join Us as a DASA Volunteer

DASA volunteers help support our mission of empowering individuals with physical disabilities to find their inner athlete through adaptive sports and fitness. Contributions from our volunteers at DASA programming and events allows us to deliver an incredible experience for our athletes and their families.

DASA provides extraordinary, inclusive year-round fitness and athletic opportunities for children, teenagers, adults, senior citizens, and injured service members and first responders who have primary physical, visual, and hearing disabilities.

Volunteering at our sporting events, clinics, fundraisers, camps, and other specialty programming is inspiring and fun and leads to a comradery that sparks motivation in all of us to explore and challenge our capabilities.
