About Teton Adaptive Sports

Teton Adaptive Sports (TAS) was formed in the spring of 2005 in Teton County and is the first non-profit in Wyoming to be associated as a chapter with Disabled Sports/USA. Our mission is to promote, support, and develop sports and recreation opportunities for people with disabilities living in and visiting the Greater Teton Area. Headquartered in Jackson Hole, Teton Adaptive Sports is centered in a region known for endless outdoor adventures. TAS was initially created as a support organization for the Adaptive Ski Programs at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and Grand Targhee Resort; to provide funding for adaptive ski equipment, instructor training, and financial assistance for individuals taking adaptive ski lessons. The summer of 2008 marked efforts by Teton Adaptive Sports to encourage and assist with the development of year round adaptive opportunities. Our model is to partner with existing recreation providers to enhance their ability to deliver a quality experience, while developing our own “in house” possibilities. We are in the business of growing and enhancing opportunities. The core TAS belief is that active participation in sports and recreation promotes individuals’ physical strength, develops confidence and self esteem, forges relationships, and contributes to a level of enjoyment and quality of life that otherwise might not be experienced. And then there’s the fun parg.

Disabled Sports/USA was formed in 1967 by a group of disabled Vietnam veterans and is dedicated to the promotion of sports and recreation for people with disabilities. The organization is a nationwide network of community based chapters that serve over 60,000 people with year round activities and competitions. In addition DS/USA has been designated the lead agency to provide sports rehabilitation for permanently disabled service members through the Wounded Warrior Disabled Sports Project. DS/USA is a nonprofit, tax exempt, educational organization and is sponsored primarily by corporate grants and donations from the private sector.
