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.

UPDATE: 22nd Annual ALBERTA AMP OPEN
July 15 & 16, 2023 at The Broadmoor Public Golf Course, Sherwood Park
The AASRA Amp Open Golf Tournament was held on July 15 and 16 at Broadmoor Golf Course in Sherwood Park, Alberta.
A total of 42 players participated including several prosthetist's representatives and of course, a number of spouses, partners and friends of AASRA amputee members. The golf course did a terrific job of hosting our annual provincial event and it appeared that a VERY good time was had by all.
Congratulations to overall tournament winner Bob MacDermott ( really Bob,... again?!? ) whose defense of the title from last year was hotly contested by several newcomers. For a complete list of all participants, category winners and pictures please click the button below.
Many thanks to Bob MacDermott for the great job he did as this year's tournament chairperson.
Next year's AASRA Amp Open is tentatively set to be held in Medicine Hat and organized by 2024 Tournament Chairperson Jesse Florkowski. See you all there!
