providing through the activities of this program, a practical means of skill development, the formation of enduring friendships  and the promotion of more active lifestyles options for persons with disabilities using wheelchairs in the Capital Region.

    Hi, my husband is newly in a powered wheelchair and our activities have dwindled. While watching curling in the Olympics we were talking about how much fun I had curling and how it wasn’t expensive etc. then I said “hey I wonder if there is wheelchair curling?” And sure enough there is

    So we are contacting you for further info and whether power chair users can play as well?

    I’d love to chat – please let me know
