Extremity Games


Extremity Games

The Extremity Games is a multi-sport, action sports competition, similar to the X Games, for athletes with amputations and limb differences. The Extremity Games was started by College Park Industries, a manufacturer of prosthetic feet, in the summer of 2006 in Orlando, Florida. Competitors perform in many different sports, categories and styles, trying to win bronze, silver and gold medals, as well as prizes and money. In addition to the competitions there are instructional clinics held in each of the sports in which trainers instruct new-comers on basics of the sport. Vital to the experience of the Extremity Games is the live music, interactive exhibit area, and featured demonstration sports that are operating concurrently with the competitions.
