Alberta Amputee Sports & Recreation Association
Welcome to AASRA
Our Association believes that the quality of life for all amputees, is enhanced through participation and interaction with other amputees, which improves one's social, emotional and physical well being. We provide moral support to new and existing amputees, both young and old alike.
We believe in furthering the rehabilitation of amputees by organizing and encouraging personal involvement in social and recreational activities. We also provide support services to those who might need a lending hand or just a shoulder to lean on. As a group we want to provide personal support to amputees and their families in the community. To make all of our lives better we assist in prosthetic research for the purpose of obtaining the best device (s) available for amputees by encouraging amputees to participate in prosthetic's training courses and research projects of all types. All of this takes money so we are committed to raising funds necessary to promote the aims and objectives of the association.

29th Canadian Amputee and Disabled National Open (CADNO)
The 2019 Canadian Amputee and Disabled Open Golf Tournament was held in Okotoks, Alberta at River’s Edge Golf Course August 14 through 17. The tournament was organized by Vic McClelland and hosted by AASRA and the Canadian Amputee Golf Association.
The course was in excellent condition, the greens were extremely fast and challenging. The golf course staff and members were very welcoming and helpful. The weather cooperated two out of three days. 34 golfers attended the tournament from Canada and the US. There were some very good scores. AASRA member Jesse Florkowski from Medicine Hat won, recovering from a two stroke deficit after 2 days, scoring a total of 220 over 3 rounds. CONGRATULATIONS JESSE!!
The weather cooperated for the first two days but was extremely challenging on the final day. Most teams stopped mid-round for an hour to let it blow through. Team Alberta – Andy VanBiert, Pat Griffin, Vic McClelland and Terry Storozhenko - finished second in the Interprovincial Championship. WELL DONE TEAM!
Thank You, Volunteers!
WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR WILLINGNESS TO TAKE TIME OUT OF YOUR BUSY LIVES TO HELP OUT.
Much of AASRA’s funding comes from our casino efforts and without the support of the AGLC we would not be able to support our members with their sporting and athletic endeavors.
And without our volunteers, we would forfeit these casino opportunities and the critical funding that comes from it.
Our latest casino netted us approximately $65,000 of funding, so from our 36 volunteer shifts, that's over $1800 per volunteer shift! As these funds play a major role in helping to keep AASRA afloat, there is NO DOUBT that your volunteer contribution makes a huge difference for us!
The next casino opportunity will come around again in late 2020, and we encourage you to please help out if you can.
