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- October 18, 2021
We had an amazing Summer with days spent on the trails, at paddling pond, and at our One for All Day Camp! It was so wonderful to get together again, to learn new sports, and most of all, to have fun.
Many PSA programs are back up and running. Registration for Swimming (November start) and Taekwondo (TBD) will be open soon!
We still have some room for new participants in jr. sledge hockey, adapted spin (Monday), and wheelchair floor hockey. We’ll keep you moving and connected with friends, new and old, all winter long. PSA programs are for everyone, of all abilities and ages. Friends and family members are encouraged to join.
Please visit our website for more information and to register. Questions? Email Kacey at email@example.com
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 programming. Programs will meet and in some cases may exceed government restrictions. COVID Declaration and PSA waivers are required in order to participate. Most of our programs run in facilities that have implemented the Restrictions Exemption Program and are requiring individuals entering the premise to provide
- proof of vaccination, or
- proof of a privately-paid negative rapid test result taken within 72 hours of service, or
- documentation of a medical exemption
Thank you for your understanding and continued support of providing a safe, inclusive sport environment that all may participate in.
