Youth Sports

Creating Opportunities for Youth with Disabilities

BORP’s youth sports program was established in 1987 and serves children and youth with physical disabilities throughout Northern California. Many participants play just for fun, others join one of BORP’s teams and compete against other youth with physical disabilities. Youth who participate in our sports programming build confidence, learn new skills, make friends, and are welcomed into a community of supportive adult coaches and peers. BORP’s wide variety of youth sports and recreation programming offers something for everyone:
