  • Join us at Triumph's 6th Annual Wheelchair Sports Festival on April 29 & 30, 2017 in Santa Clarita. The event is open for the whole community to participate, and it's FREE!


    Come out to play wheelchair hockey, basketball, quad rugby, racquetball, SCUBA, handcycling, powerchair rodeo, WCMX, baseball, and more.


    Our goal is to introduce wheelchair sports to more people, increase inclusiveness and awareness of people living with disabilities in the community, and having FUN!


    We will have an extra 30+ sports wheelchairs for people to use, plus coaches and instructors to teach you how to play the games. Just show up! Did we mention that it's free?


    Registration begins at 8:00am

    Event Starts at 9:00am (both days)

    Ends at 5pm Saturday; 3pm Sunday.


    The Wheelchair Sports Festival brings everyone together of all abilities - able body and disabled alike - to take part in a weekend of games and activities.


    The Wheelchair Sports Festival is part of the Paralympic Gateway to Gold initiative that is a talent identification program introducing Paralympic-eligible athletes to sports, acting as a pipeline to competition, and is often the first step toward the podium representing U.S. Paralympic Team.


    Triumph Foundation hosts this free event to introduce wheelchair sports to people that are newly injured, Veterans, children, and others with disabilities; as well as provide learning opportunities to the general public and showcase people living with physical impairment in a way that members of the community do not often see.


    Fun for your whole family.
