River City Buddy Ball, a program through Jacob’s Chance, provides full season athletics in an inclusive setting where participants with physical, developmental, or intellectual differences are able to play alongside volunteers, or as we call them, “buddies.” Because our sports are non-competitive and supportive of unique abilities, our athletes are able to gain confidence, learn new skills, and form lasting friendships.


With a focus on adapting the sport to the athlete, anyone can play. We encourage parents who are unsure if their child can participate, to bring them out!

If you're interested in being placed on a waitlist for a program that's full, feel free to contact us at to be placed on the list!
