Team Mesa Bulldogs

Adaptive sports, recreation and social programs for individuals with
intellectual or developmental disabilities.

The Team Mesa Adaptive Sports programs are provided as a collaborative effort between the City of Mesa Parks, Recreation & Commercial Facilities, the Mesa Public Schools and the Mesa Association of Sports for the Disabled (also doing business as Arizona Disabled Sports). The collaboration serves as the Mesa delegation of Special Olympics Arizona, the state chapter charged with providing year-round sports training and competitions for the entire state. MASD is a separate non-profit organization dedicated to providing adaptive sports and recreation to individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities in Mesa.

The adaptive programs are provided for individuals ages 8 through adulthood and occur during their respective seasons. Sports offered include aquatics, bocce ball, bowling, basketball, golf, floor hockey, cheerleading, tennis and track & field. The collaboration also provides several outdoor programs including Camp Carley and California Adventure and social programs including TGIF and the Fashion Show.

Team Mesa adaptive sports is designed specifically for students and adults who have been diagnosed with an intellectual disability. Many of the Team Mesa athletes also have physical disabilities and our organization recognizes this fact, providing sports and events specifically for athletes who are both intellectually and physically disabled.

A medical examination by a physician is required for participation in any program. In addition, athletes with Down Syndrome are required to have a 3 view neck x-ray to determine the possibility of a condition called atlanto-axial subluxation.

Due to the unique partnership between the organizations, the registration forms and payment are monitored and collected by the City of Mesa Parks.
