Paralympic Sports Association
The Paralympic Sports Association (PSA) is a charitable, volunteer driven, organization that provides sport and recreation opportunities for children, youth, teens, adults and seniors with disability and their family and friends. Since 1965 the PSA has been providing recreation and adaptive sport programs in Edmonton, Alberta and it’s surrounding areas. Today, PSA provides programming in Edmonton, Medicine Hat (through our chapter organization Medicine Hat Adaptive Sports and Recreation), Grande Prairie (through our partner organization Wolverines Wheelchair Sports Association) and Red Deer. Programs and activities have grown and expanded over the years to meet demand from the community.
PSA Update- July 16, 2021
We’ve had overwhelming response to our Summer programs and are now FULL for Kayaking and Cycling. Spots are filling quickly for our One for All Day camps - register soon to avoid disappointment! Information on Adaptive Golf programs will be released soon.
Keep an eye on the website, as well as our social media pages for announcements and updates to programs and registration. We are on Twitter (@Sports_PSA), Facebook (@PSASports) and Instagram (@psaalberta) and our new web address is www.parasportsab.com
Please note: COVID screening, policies, and waivers will remain in place for all PSA summer programming. Programs will meet and in some cases may exceed government restrictions. COVID Declaration and PSA waivers are required in order to participate. If you have any questions, please contact your program coordinator.
