Victory Games Series - An array of multi or single sport venues or activities, serving both multi or single disability audiences while offering competitive and participatory events and activities which create opportunities for athletes with disabilities to participate, train, advance, and to have fun while meeting, greeting and learning from one another.

    Examples of Victory Games events and activities may include track and field meets, invitationals, and team tournaments such as wheelchair basketball, goal ball, sledge hockey or soccer, road racing, exhibitions, national and international athletic competitions and games, clinics, or workshops to mention a few!!!

  2. National Disability Sports Registry - The purpose of this service is to gather and maintain data reflecting to the world just how many people with disabilities are currently participating in sports, recreation, leisure, health and fitness activities.

    The ability to accurately identify the number of athletes with disabilities and the number of other individuals (family, friends and supporters) will help to support and justify positive and beneficial decisions on funding and resources for disability sports and recreation.
