We need all the support we can get. If you are interested in Sponsoring the Kings contact us as soon as possible. We can accommodate corporate sponsorship on our jerseys and wheelchairs including website exposure.

Last year the Kings took a 18-20 hour drive to Houston in order to participate. We held fundraisers around town including at the Albuquerque Summerfest and had raffles in front of various Walmarts around the city. We appreciate all the community support which made the trip possible last year. This year we hope to be able to fly down as the drive alone can be wearing when you’re competing against the best in the nation.
