Sportacular Fusion: A night of Dance and Celebration

November 4, 2023

Registration & Sponsorship Information Coming Soon!

Sportacular Fusion

Join us for an evening of fun, food, and inspiration benefiting the athletes of DASA! This is an opportunity to come together with the community and learn about and celebrate the accomplishments of our DASA athletes.

DASA’s Annual Sportacular Event raises awareness and funds for individuals with physical disabilities. Funds raised through the Sportacular go directly toward our mission of providing financial assistance towards personal training, recreational and competitive sports, summer camp, and competition fees for our athletes.

We’re back at the RYSE Nightclub at the Ameristar Casino in 2023! Save the date and join us for a night of dance and celebration!

Sportacular allows us to expand our awareness, to stop the misconception of “can’t” in our community, and enable youth and adults with physical disabilities to participate in therapeutic, recreational, and competitive activities.

Your Contributions Make an Impact

Since DASA was founded in 1997, we’ve impacted tens of thousands of children and families by providing opportunities in adaptive training, fitness, recreation, and competition.

We’ve continued our tradition of innovation and coaching and have grown into an elite adaptive sports organization serving the Greater St. Louis Area and Mid-Missouri, in addition to athletes who live throughout the state of Missouri, and the entire Midwest! 

We continue to offer our established Recreation and Competition programing such as Tennis, Basketball, and Rugby, while adding Boccia, Air Rifle, Archery and Powerlifting with more programs being developed each session! The Ability Gym, DASA’s adaptive fitness center, continues to train our athletes from DASA HQ in Mid Rivers Mall. The Wiggles & Giggles program, offers a unique experience allowing children with physical disabilities as young as 18-months to discover their abilities and independence through sport and to empower them early to find their inner athlete. Camp WeCanDu continues to offer life-changing memories and opportunities for 60+ children during a week-long overnight camp each Summer!

Your support allows individuals with physical disabilities the opportunity to achieve their athletic potential in recreation and competition, at the local, national, and global levels. It also impacts their mental health to increase independence, build a sense of belonging, and achieve equity and representation in the community. 

Donations to DASA impact people directly through the following initiatives:

  • Ability Gym scholarships ($8500): 4 individuals with physical disabilities were awarded scholarships to continue training to improve strength and gain more mobility and independence in their daily lives.
  • Scholarships in fitness classes and for individuals with Multiple Sclerosis and Early Memory Loss programs.
  • Allows DASA to secure the facilities and equipment required to offer comprehensive adaptive sports and fitness programs throughout the region. 
  • Continued investment in state-of-the art equipment for the Ability Gym like our Solo-Step over-head tracking system.
  • Ability to identify and retain talented staff and coaches so our athletes have access to and can benefit from their specialized knowledge and training. 
  • Subsidizing program costs to allow more people the opportunity to participate in DASA training, recreation, and competition by offering affordable programming.

We could not continue to grow without the help of supporters like you.
