At the Capital Wheelchair Curling Club, our members are dedicated to providing support with skill and sport development for community members with a disability. The formation of enduring friendships and the promotion of more active lifestyle options are common side effects experienced by members.
The Capital Wheelchair Curling Club is committed to:
developing a not-for-profit, community based, recreational wheelchair curling program with emphasis on maximizing participation and enjoyment.
encouraging, by example, the integration of wheelchair curling programs throughout the Capital Region by promoting elimination of participation barriers.
promoting the development of a competitive wheelchair curling program consistent with Para-Olympic curling requirements.
ensuring that the program operates within the established framework of Curling Canada and its member organizations wherever applicable.
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.
We encourage all non-competitive players to come out and give it a try.
