Disabled Sports USA Far West

DSUSAfarwestlogoDisabled Sports USA Far West leads the way in adaptive sports and recreation for people with disabilities. With over 40 years experience, our trained staff and volunteers guide you in discovering life without limits.

Brief History. In 1967 Jim Winthers brought together a group of Vietnam Veterans to support each other as they learned to cope with their disabilities. These Veterans taught themselves and others how to ski. Winthers, a World War II Veteran of the 10th Mountain Division and Director of the Soda Springs Ski School, launched our organization, Disabled Sports USA.

Disabled Sports has continued its rehabilitation orientation and remains dedicated to the belief that sports are a vital part of the process in which disabled individuals gain self-confidence, mobility, and greater independence. Our programs promote education, socialization and employment. They help turn tragedy into triumph by instilling in participants the knowledge that it’s not their disabilities, but their abilities that count.
