Challenged Youth Sports


Challenged Youth Sports began in 1990 in Lincroft, New Jersey as a recreational sports program for children with disabilities. The program is totally volunteer based, using caring adults and wonderful teenagers from our community. Our objective is to provide recreation for the children while fostering an environment for positive reinforcement through recreational sports. We are recognized as a 501-C-3 non-profit organization.

Our program began with 20 children in 1990 and now has more than 150 participants playing Soccer and Flag Football in the Fall, Basketball in the Winter, Tennis and Little League Softball in the Spring, and Golf in the summer. We also host dances at Valentine's Day and Halloween. Click here to see a recent Asbury Park Press article showing some of our players in action. 

We completed our first playground (click on Our 1st Accessible Playground tab on the left to see it) in June 2004 and we completed our second playground, Tony's Place, in November 2009.  These are fully accessible playgrounds for children of ALL abilities.   Both of these playgrounds were built with the assistance of the wonderful people at the Monmouth County Parks System.
