All-Star Training Club (ATC) was established to provide an integrated sports program for individuals with or without disabilities where everyone, regardless of ability, is encouraged to participate on the field of athletic competition. ATC is a sanctioned Special Olympics organization and is the only program in a five-county area that offers such a unique approach to athletics where everyone is given the opportunity to become a rising star.

In early 2014, All-Star Training Club became the newest member of the United Disability Services (UDS) family. In his new role, ATC Founder Dan Lancianese will continue to work closely with athletes, families and volunteers to promote the benefits of fun and fitness for everyone.

United Disability Services is celebrating 65 years of enhancing the lives of people with disabilities by providing opportunities for full participation in the community. For more information about any of our other programs and services visit us at www.udsakron.org.
