Club Request Program – WSA has a positive working relationship with all the clubs in the province. When a club wants to host a tournament or clinic, WSA likes to assist.
Coaching and Officiating Program – WSA aids in the development of new and experienced coaches and officials who require assistance to further their training.
Equipment Rental Program – WSA rents specialized equipment to its members for a small fee. We loan racing and sport chairs, rollers, and sports equipment to developing athletes so that no one is excluded from participating in sport.
Insurance – WSA provides affordable insurance for all its members, covering general accident and third party liability for all training and competition activities.
Scholarship Program – WSA provides financial assistance to Alberta’s top developing and elite athletes. Our scholarships and bursaries assist athletes in training, competition, and equipment expenses.
Training Assistance Program (TAP) – The TAP program provides assistance for athletes to attend approved WSA training and development camps, clinics and workshops
WSA’s Monthly Giving program helps to support athletes along the entire development spectrum. We support athletes at first contact through to the national level. These donations help to fund Have-A-Go Days, developmental camps, and Team Alberta (for all 5 sports) to represent our province at National competitions. Wheelchair Sports Alberta and our athletes would not be as successful as we are without the continuous support from our monthly donors.
