Sports for Special Athletes (SSA) volunteers and athletes are people just like you. We are your friends, neighbours and co-workers.
All members – athletes, volunteers and coaches are voting members. Family members are encouraged to register as members so they may also influence the direction of the organization.
Sports for Special Athletes was formed by coaches, volunteers and parents who acknowledged that many special needs individuals can learn the skills necessary to participate in existing community activities and competitions.
Fall sports – registration is in September.
Spring and summer sports – registration is in April/May
Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Takes place every November. Nominations for executive.
Cost: Annual membership is currently very low. This covers liability insurance, facility costs and administrative costs in-curred by volunteers. Sport costs vary from sport to sport but are generally substantially less than regular community sport fees. Family memberships are also available as are corporate and sponsor member-ships.
Facilities: Our participants use safe, clean public facilities such as the Family Fitness Su-per Club and RIM Park. They become members of sports groups (i.e. Ontario Powerlifting Association, Heritage Lawn Bowling Club, K-W Ser-toma Speed Skating Club).
