Athletes, parents, coaches, volunteers, sponsors, and guests:
Our entire team is thrilled to welcome you to the 4th annual Angel City Games, hosted at the iconic UCLA campus in Los Angeles.
We can’t wait to see all of our amazing athletes and their incredible families arrive on the UCLA campus for the Angel City Games on June 21st and spend four amazing days with us making memories and breaking both records and barriers!
A special welcome to all of our new athletes and their families. If this will be your first time at the Angel City Games, we are so delighted to have you join us. You are now part of the fastest growing adaptive sports movement on the West Coast and we know you will have an amazing experience. Our team has been working hard for many months to put together a tremendous event.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, this year’s Games will be the first one where we are able to offer a complete “suggested donation” pricing. We have been working towards this for several years and now can make the games even more accessible to families of all economic levels.
There’s so much happening over the weekend that you should take some time to browse this website to learn all about the fun things offered at the Angel City Games this year. From our sports competitions to our sports clinics to our celebrity wheelchair basketball game and all of the entertainment happening on our mainstage, you’ll want to know what’s happening before you arrive at UCLA. We’re especially excited to bring back our evening outdoor event on Friday night, the Great Games Cookout. It’s a chance for athletes and their families to get to know each other better and build relationships that are such an important part of our community.
Please try to take advantage of all that’s offered and try something new along the way.
For volunteers and sponsors and anyone coming to enjoy the games as a spectator, we’re so pleased you’re part of our team and we thank you in advance for all of your support.
Once again, thank you all and we look forward to seeing you in June at the 2018 Angel City Games!

Angel City Games History
The Angel City Games is the leading adaptive sports festival in the Greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. As the largest metro area in size in the United States, and with a population of about 20 million people, there are thousands of adaptive athletes who are served by the Angel City Games. Though Los Angeles is host for the Games, participants in previous years have traveled to participate from all over the country and world.
This multi-day, multi-event sports festival includes both competitions and clinics for athletes of many different impairments and skill level.
The Angel City Games is a family friendly event with plenty of activities throughout the weekend for all to enjoy. The goal is to celebrate these incredible athletes and create a community of support and understanding around sports. Adaptive athletes can come and try new sports, compete in sports they love, and everyone else can be part of the experience and even get a sense of what being an adaptive athlete is all about.
The first Angel City Games in June 2015 were tremendously successful, with 150 athletes participating in Track & Field and Wheelchair Basketball clinics and competition. Over 1,300 attendees came through over the 2 day event; Hollywood stars Adam Sandler and Christian Bale and several pro athletes were on-hand to cheer the athletes and participate in our Celebrity Wheelchair Basketball Game; and our media partners at Fox Sports AM 570 - LA's largest sports radio station - broadcast live from the track at UCLA's Drake Stadium during the event. The first Angel City Games exceed all of our expectations and were a huge hit with families, volunteers, sponsors, partners, and most importantly with the athletes, many of whom participated in Adaptive Sports for the first time.
In 2017 we again returned to UCLA for the Angel City Games, but expanded the event to a four-day festival that included first-time clinic in tennis. We doubled participation in the Games and received even more media attention.
