Dwarf Sports Association UK logo
Mission Statement: To make regular sporting opportunity accessible and enjoyable to anyone and everyone of restricted growth in the United Kingdom, regardless of their race, colour, ethnic origin, gender, location, sporting ability or financial support.
Aims & Objectives: To promote and develop sport for persons of restricted growth and to enable them to enter and compete in sport on an equal footing.To promote recreational sport for the the benefit of any persons of restricted growth.To promote competitive sport for dwarf athletes both in the United Kingdom and Internationally.To provide opportunities for dwarf athletes to train for and compete in the World Dwarf Games, the Paralympic and the Olympic games.

From humble beginnings the Association has grown from strength to strength holding a National Games each year. Every year the National Open Games grows in numbers and every year records are broken and personal bests attained. The National Games are now IPC sanctioned, meaning athletes are competing for world ranking positions and qualifying for European and World events. The DSAuk National Games is a three day event with athletics, swimming, football, powerlifting, basketball, hockey, table tennis, cycling, new age curling and Rifle shooting. Along with running National events, the DSAuk now has nine regions covering the whole of the UK, offering different events each month for members in their area. We feel that it is important that all young people with dwarfism can feel that they can meet up regularly with other friends who have the same condition, rather than wait for the national events which are less frequent.
