Our Programs

We deliver recreational programs, competitive coaching, competitions, and sports sciences (e.g. sport nutrition; banned substance information; mental skills techniques). We additionally support individual athletes by subsidizing travel, accommodation and registration fees at competitive events they need to attend in order to further develop in their sport. Learn about the sports offered at each of our program sites by clicking below

 

Boccia

Boccia is a Paralympic sport that is based off of the Italian game "Bocce". It involves throwing, kicking, or using a ramp with an assistant to propel a soft leather ball towards a target. Assistive equipment such as ramps and head pointers allows individuals with a wide range of impairments to play.
 

Para Soccer

Para Soccer is an accessible soccer program for any individual interested in developing soccer skills in a social and supportive environment. We welcome anyone with a visual, physical, cognitive or developmental disability to join our group!

Power Soccer

Power soccer has been described as “playing soccer in go karts!” by our athletes. Plastic or metal foot guards are attached to the front of power wheelchairs to maneuver a giant soccer ball. It is a fast paced sport that requires teamwork and skillful driving.
 

Inclusive cross training program for youth

Athletes with and without physical and cognitive impairment are invited to participate and work alongside one another to build physical literacy skills and agility through a speed development cross training program.
