SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes (S4EA) was founded by a group of coaches, parents, volunteers, and community members who determined that there was a need for a community-based sports program for athletes with and without developmental disabilities in San Diego County. Many in this group have 10, 20, or more years of experience serving the needs of people with developmental disabilities.
Walter has over 40 years experience working in sports programs for persons with developmental disabilities. He helped found SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes 13 years ago.
Clara has over 40 years experience working with persons with developmental disabilities. She helped found SPORTS for Exceptional Athletes 13 years ago.
