Prime Time Games High School League
Building upon the formula that has made the GAMES such a success at the middle school level, the Prime Time Games creates full-inclusion teams by pairing underprivileged youth and children with special needs from the same high school. These blended teams compete against one another in the only League of its kind, giving children with developmental challenges the only real opportunity to participate in a mainstream high school sports experience (The “Varsity” experience).
The program began in 2012 with Venice High School and University High School competing against one another during Spring Basketball Season and Fall Soccer Season. The program has since tripled in size with the addition of Fairfax, Hamilton, Culver City, Dorsey, and L.A. High Schools.
The Prime Time Games is a model program that meets the U.S. Dept. of Education’s directive that all schools either include children with disabilities in sports programs or provide equal alternative options.
