Come & Try Sessions

Everyone has to start somewhere, sometime, somehow.

Our current members usually get in a sports chair for the first time ..

  • When they are recovering after an accident

  • Didn't know about wheelchair sport

  • Believed sport was not an option for them because of mobility issues. 

  • Thought wheelchair sport was just for the young and dream of being Paralympians

  • Have left it too late and are now too old.

  • Are too shy to give a try.

  • Are just not the athletic type.

  • Our oldest participant is 80 years old...and is now a "demon" in the chair.

  • We cater for our community members affected by spinal cord, injury, spina bifida and any mobility issues that preclude you from participating in AB (Able Body) sports or exercise.
