Children's Adaptive Team Sports - Creating memories, one game at a time
CATS is a sports league for children with developmental disabilities designed to improve the quality of life through team sports participation. Through weekly engagement in games; players will gain confidence, social skills, gross motor skills, behavior skills, and the opportunity to be part of community-based settings. The goal of CATS is for children that are not able to participate in typical functioning team sports programs to have the opportunity of participating in all of the same activities, experiences, and friendships created through sports.
CATS provides an opportunity for any child with developmental disabilities to play team sports. Children are grouped based on ability, not age or grade. Any significant behavior or health concerns will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Safety is the primary concern for all players when determining participation in CATS.
Games are played on the weekends at the various indoor sports facilities and community centers in Northern Virginia. Seasons consist of 6 games and go year round. Coaches & referees are trained volunteers. All of our staff is dedicated to providing a fun and enjoyable hour of exercise and social interaction! Awards ceremonies are held at the end of each season to ensure each child is recognized with a trophy!

CATS is excited to announce that there is a new program being added to serve our athletes! CATS Cheer has found a home at Phase Cheer and Dance. Any interested athletes are encouraged to send an email directly to with your child's information. This program will differ from our other program. CATS Cheer will be a year round program, with monthly dues. This will cover the cost of competitions that the girls will participate in throughout the year. They will have the opportunity to cheer at local competitions, including one at Kings Dominion. Practice will be held weekly on Sundays at 12:00pm. Cheer uniforms and shirts will be rented at an additional cost. The program will be run by Senior Cheerleaders as well as experienced coach from Phase Cheer and Dance, Holly Senn. Margarita Benavides will also be part of the program to provide support and training regarding redirection, instruction, and reinforcement as it relates to your athletes' individual needs.  Please take some time to look at their website to learn more about them. Please email with your child's information if you are interested!
