WHO IS PLAYMAKERS?
Playmakers is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing an opportunity for differently-abled children and adults to experience the joy of programs that others may take for granted. As an example one of the main barriers for baseball players arise from the natural grass fields used in conventional leagues, Playmakers will play on a custom-designed, rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assertive devices while helping to prevent injuries.
THE MISSION OF PLAYMAKERS
Playmakers is about
Making new friends
Being treated like other athletes.
Bringing families together and creating a community of like-minded people
To help these athletes, Playmakers uses a “buddy” system – pairing each player with an able-bodied peer. The result is a bond that cannot be described.
Playmakers serves children and adults who suffer from physical or mental disabilities, which causes them to be excluded from conventional Baseball, Basketball, and Dance programs, whether intentionally or not.
We are a volunteer led organization that encourages input from our families to guide us in the programs we offer. Through community outreach we will fund and build an adaptive park where these programs will be take place.
"Every Child Deserves A Chance to Play.”
We cannot change or cure the medical issues life has dealt children with disabilities.
What we can do is provide them with an opportunity to experience the joy and benefits that come from playing.
