Courage League Is Coming to Indianola

Courage League was opened because of a need in Central Iowa for those with special needs to have a place to play and be active in a safe, family-friendly environment.   

Courage League Sports is a non-profit adaptive sports and recreational facility, located in Urbandale, Iowa, that offers year-round programming for children and adults who are not able to go full speed due to a physical, cognitive or emotional disability. By adapting the pace, equipment, or nature of an activity, Courage League provides a safe and accessible environment where participants can go at their own speed.

Courage League Sports was inspired by Jack who at the age of eight suffered multiple strokes that forever changed his life. Frustrated at the lack of options for her son, Melissa Clarke-Wharff opened Courage League Sports where those with special needs could participate and be active outside of a therapy atmosphere. Today, Courage League serves nearly 1,000 children and adults monthly. 

Courage League Is Coming to Indianola.  There is a recognized need throughout the state of Iowa and across the nation for similar programs. Iowa’s only all-inclusive adaptive sports and recreational program is expanding to Indianola.  Indianola Parks and Rec will provide oversight to give children and adults with physical, cognitive or emotional disabilities the opportunity participate.

The first Indianola Adaptive Sports Day will be held on May 13, 2017 at the Indianola YMCA.  Soccer, giant game board fitness, parachute play and tumbling are just a few of the activities participants can look forward to enjoying.
