Based in the City of Parkland since 2002, Parkland Buddy Sports, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit providing organized peer to peer sports programming for children and young adults with special needs and volunteer opportunities for students.
Parkland Buddy Sports cultivates an empowering, challenging and loving environment with an emphasis on fun and friendship. Our motto, “No Limits,” means that every player, volunteer and coach has the chance to reach their full potential every time they step on the field or court with our program.
We’re inclusive in every way!
Our goal is to make our programs accessible for all families with children and young adults with special needs in the tri-county area (Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties). And, our mission to keep our programs fee free is intentional, to alleviate any extra financial burdens on the families we serve.
While our outstanding, outdoor recreational programs are for the kids, we encourage the parents of our players to enjoy the down time and to just sit back, relax and watch their kids engaging, achieving and having fun.
Our student volunteers are the backbone of our program, often joining for the community service hours, but often staying for the love. Collectively we all learn patience, tolerance and the ability one person has to change the life of another - which is truly the purpose of our program.
Run by a volunteer board of directors comprised of community advocates, we rely solely on the generous support from personal and corporate donations and sponsorships. 100% of all funds raised goes directly back into the program to cover expenses incurred for each activity and participant.
