Alberta Amputee Sports & Recreation Association

Welcome to AASRA

Our Philosophy

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.

Becoming a member of AASRA is easy. Click here to receive information on how to sign up.

OUR MISSION:  To support and provide opportunities for amputees
in recreation and sporting activities, in both disabled and able bodied events.

resource booklet for Amputees

AASRA member Doug Campbell used his own personal experiences and learned knowledge to author a wonderful resource booklet aimed at helping other amputees prepare for and deal with their new reality.

ASSRA GIVES BACK

With the current COVID restrictions on gatherings and travel bringing our athletes competitions to an abrupt halt, AASRA chose to divert some of its available funding for athlete participation in such events, to another very worthy local cause.

Donations totaling $40,000 were made to six different Food Bank organizations across the province, to help them with continuing to provide the critical service they do, during this difficult time.

 

And that generosity was obviously very well received, and went straight to work!  Click the button below to see a few of the heartfelt responses AASRA received back from these extremely grateful organizations.
