How are we making a difference?

For nearly 40 years, OCPSA has helped thousands of children and adults with cerebral palsy and similar disabilities achieve active lifestyles and be socially engaged with their peers, families and communities, not only as building blocks to life-long health and wellbeing, but also to reach their full potential in life through personal growth, achievement and greater levels of independence.

Young children experiencing the fun and enjoyment of trying a recreational sport for the very first time while also receiving the positive encouragement needed to continue taking part in sport.
School-age kids participating regularly in organized recreational sport programs where they develop fundamental skills, confidence and friendships that encourage ongoing engagement in sport.
Young people and adults participating in competitive sport programs for advanced skill development with experienced coaches, as well as access to quality opportunities to compete locally, provincially, nationally and internationally depending on interest and skill level.
Elite athletes (youth and adults) participating in high-performance sport programs for world-class training, competition and support with expert coaches and technical leaders who shape and drive athletic excellence at the highest levels of domestic and international competition.

Whatever age or ability, everyone should have access to sport and active recreational programming so that they can pursue their athletic dreams…whatever they may be!

That is why your support is so important. OCPSA prides itself on being able to provide free and low cost sport programming to the people and families we serve, since many already face financial challenges related to daily special needs expenses. It is through your support of our valuable charitable work that we are able to bring the life-changing benefits of sport and physical activity to all those with a desire (or even a curiosity) to participate!

Your support helps OCPSA to provide:

  • All levels of amateur athlete development from the classroom to the podium and everywhere in between.
  • All levels of sport training and sport education (clinics, camps, workshops, team/individual practices, etc.).
  • All levels of competition support (preparing for and support during events including travel and support staff coordination).
  • Coach training and education (courses, clinics and workshops).
  • Courses and seminars on officiating and classifying.
