Testimonials

“Power soccer is a great opportunity for finding friends and to grow as a person. It helps players build their confidence and independence. Moreover, it gives those who have been limited in their athletic endeavors the opportunity to have an outlet for their love of competition and sport. “
Keith Knight, Powerchair Soccer

“In 2011, I participated in the “Footie 7” tournament in Porto, Portugal. I played in all four games as a forward and scored my 1st goal for Canada vs. Portugal. I want to be able play for Canada in June in the 2011 World Championships in Holland, then ultimately, the London 2012 Paralympics.

If someone has ambitions to go to the Paralympics, then I think this is a vital route to take. For myself, playing 7-aside soccer gives me confidence to play 11 Aside soccer. I think it is very fun and teaches players with disabilities different soccer skills and sets realistic soccer goals. The program helps me become more aware of my own health and other needs. I feel this helps, and will continue to help make me reach my dream of making the Paralympics in 2012. “

Joseph Resendes, 7-Aside Soccer

I am very interested in breaking down barriers so that people with disabilities can fully participate in sports, at work, and in life. Firstly, I think others should get involved in Boccia because it is fun and you get to meet some amazing people, and develop new relationships. Secondly, you get the opportunity to travel around the world. Thirdly, you can compete against people that are the best in the world.
Paul Gauthier, Boccia

“I began playing wheelchair football roughly 9 years ago. It has given me many social opportunities to be around people who experience similar challenges as I do and it has allowed me to emerge as a leader and to show my true competitive nature.”
Luke Galvani, Powerchair Soccer

“Sledge hockey is a great inclusive game for people of any ability and age level that encourages fair play and team work whether you are looking to be involved in the sport in a recreational or competitive atmosphere.”
Peggy Assinck, Sledge Hockey

“When I play sledge hockey, mine and everyone else’s disability no longer matters. I’ve made great friends here and have a lot of fun. It’s a great way to stay fit and really fun to be part of a team for the first time in my life!”
Thea Hill, Sledge Hockey
