Angel City Sports (ACS) offers a year-round schedule of introductory adaptive sport clinics, giving athletes opportunities to participate, learn and train in a variety of sports. Sport clinics and competitions include Archery, Swimming, Wheelchair Tennis, Track & Field, and Wheelchair Basketball. ACS has a growing inventory of Adaptive Sports equipment to be loaned or rented to other programs and individuals who want to get into the game.

Angel City Sports began in June 2013 when Clayton and Ezra Frech were on the track at the Endeavor Games in Oklahoma City and asked the question, “Why do we need to come to tornado alley to run, jump, and throw things? Why aren’t there more programs in Southern California?”

This began the journey to create the Angel City Games, Southern California’s own multi-sport Paralympic style competition and celebration of Adaptive Sports. In October 2014, ACS found a facility and programming partner in UCLA Recreation and set about to create a one-of-a-kind competition and event experience for youth and adults with physical disabilities.

The first Angel City Games in June 2015 were tremendously successful, with 150 athletes participating in Track & Field and Wheelchair Basketball clinics and competition. Over 1,300 attendees came through over the 2 day event and was a huge hit with families, volunteers, sponsors, partners, and athletes—many of whom participated in Adaptive Sports for the first time.

Today Angel City Sports is leading the Paralympic Sports movement in Southern California, creating sports opportunities for anyone with a physical disability.
