UCO and the Endeavor Games

The University of Central Oklahoma's annual Endeavor Games for Athletes with Physical Disabilities provides children, adults and military service members with physical disabilities an opportunity to display their talents in a proper and competitive setting against individuals with similar disabilities. The Endeavor Games were held for the first time in 2000 on the UCO campus. The event was originally created by a non-profit organization, whose mission was to provide quality sports programs to athletes with physical disabilities from Oklahoma and beyond. In 2004, UCO recognized the importance and potential this event had and absorbed the non-profit and its staff. Because of UCO's early involvement with the Endeavor Games, UCO was selected as a U.S. Paralympic training site in 2005 and has since been named a U.S. Olympic training site as well. UCO is one of only 18 organizations in the nation with this designation and the only university to hold the designation as an Olympic and Paralympic training site. UCO is also an Olympic and Paralympic Community Partner and offers adaptive sport opportunities for its students
