Programs associated with PDI include:

Buddy Ball: The game’s the same…just different!

Buddy Ball provides individuals with a intellectual and/or physical disability the opportunity to play sports, regardless of their abilities.

By attending one game, you will realize that Buddy Ball is a special kind of league and has made a huge difference in many lives. Buddy Ball moves beyond a sport and becomes an affair of the heart.Buddy Ball helps athletes learn teamwork and promotes self-esteem, one of the tools needed to help overcome the stigma often associated with a disability. The Buddy Ball league is aware of the extra expenses for those with special abilities. Because of this, Buddy Ball does not charge any fees to participate. They rely entirely on private donations, from local civic organizations, and the kindness of others to offer this wonderful program.
