Missouri Valley / Heart Of America

Join Us For a Special Block Party with Accessible Sports of Greater Kansas City on June 23!

Sydney Hamilton | June 02, 2022

Come one, come all–USTA Heart of America is proud to partner with our friends at Accessible Sports of Greater Kansas City (ASGKC) for a fun, informative, and FREE Block Party that promises to be a good time for attendees of all ages!

Join us at the Brush Creek Community Center (3801 Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd., Kansas City, MO 64130) on Thursday, June 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to learn more about adaptive sports programs and how we can all work together to achieve healthy lifestyles–no matter your ability. We’ll be there alongside other organizations from the Kansas City area to help showcase adaptive sports programs for individuals with disabilities including wheelchair tennis, powerchair soccer, and so much more. You’ll even have a chance to check out some sweet sports chairs used for wheelchair sports!


But that’s not all: the Chiefs Training Lab powered by GEHA will also be on-site, and so will the Disabled But Not Really Fitness Trailer and the Kansas City Public Library Bookmobile! 

Browse the displays, chat with fellow community members, dance along to some fun music, then cool off with a swim in the Brush Creek Pool, which will be open from noon-6 p.m. Talk about a fun summer day!
