Team Alberta – WSA facilities the provincial teams for all 5 sports. This includes approved WSA Training and Development camps, clinics, and workshops.
WSA’s Fundraising Program program helps support athletes along the entire development spectrum, from the first contact to the national level. These donations help to fund community outreach programs, developmental camps, and all 5 Team Alberta programs, 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.
