The VAS Story
For 15 years TAS had been striving to bring a bit of the programs that it does in Teton County, Wyoming to Teton County, Idaho. As population grew ‘over the hill’ it became the needs of the adaptive community grew alongside it.
Enter Valley Adaptive Sports (VAS), which was launched Feb. 1, 2020 at a fundraising event that community members could meet the staff, the participants that they are serving and share what VAS could do to build programs. VAS began to serve the needs that our sister program in Wyoming could not. With an independent Eastern Idaho program there will be so many more funding, and therefore program, opportunities!
About 4% of the population is living with a disability, VAS was born to help the community welcome and serve those people in all of the recreation activities the residents of Teton Valley enjoy. VAS programs will respond directly to local requests from participants and partner organizations.
