April 19th, 2021
FORT WAYNE, IN (April 19, 2021) — Registration is open for the 5th Annual Turnstone Endeavor Games, an event that invites athletes with physical disabilities to participate in various sporting events on a novice and competitive level. While the 2020 event was held virtually, this year’s event returns to Fort Wayne June 24th-26th, 2021.
This adaptive sporting event features 10 sports — archery, air rifle shooting, boccia, goalball, power soccer, sitting volleyball, swimming, wheelchair tennis, track & field, and wheelchair basketball. In addition, clinics will be held to allow athletes to try something new or strengthen their skills.
Early registration for this year’s Turnstone Endeavor Games begins today, April 19th, and runs through May 7th. Priority registration allows athletes to sign up for the competition at just $15 with clinics included for free. In addition, the first 15 veterans to register will be fully funded with meals and room accommodations included thanks to a grant from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

“Now in our fifth year of partnership with the University of Oklahoma, we are proud to enhance the Endeavor Games legacy of adaptive sports,” said Mike Mushett, CEO of Turnstone. “Fort Wayne is an accessible and welcoming community and provides the perfect environment for Endeavor Games athletes to have a high-quality experience.”
The Turnstone Endeavor Games will open on Thursday, June 24th with a day of sports clinics and a welcome party in the evening for athletes, coaches, and families in the Plassman Athletic Center at Turnstone. Throughout the weekend, events will take place at Turnstone, The-X-Count, Indiana Tech Warrior Park, and the Carroll High School Natatorium.
