Mixed Ability Sport presents an exciting opportunity to engage EVERYONE in sport and recreation, no matter age, experience, or ability.
Mixed Ability Sport differs from able-bodied, Special Olympics and parasport, in that it uses the inclusion components of these to maximize participation for individuals of any background or ability without classification, divisions or labels.
Innovative variations within existing sports allows for full inclusion, not only for individuals with disabilities, but also for those returning to sport, newcomers, and any individual in our communities.
Enhancing existing program offerings within clubs, communities, municipalities and schools, Mixed Ability Sport provides a foundation for everyone to actively participate together, and to share in the benefits that sport brings.
In February 2020, Abilities Centre partnered with International Mixed Ability Sports (IMAS) to become the exclusive developers and delivery agents for Mixed Ability Sport in Canada. Through this partnership, Abilities Centre will work with both provincial and national sports organizations, as well as local clubs to develop the capacity to offer mixed ability sport programming in every community.
