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.

Welcome to our Champions Series, in which we interview a group of influential amputees to inspire youth within the amputee community.
Our latest feature is ANGELENA DOLEZAR who recently participated as a member of Canada's Sit Volleyball team at the 2021 Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
The 2022 Alberta Wheelchair Curling Championships were held in January in Banff. AASRA member Wendy Frazier's team placed on top for Gold while the team with AASRA Director
Don Kuchelyma on board took the Silver medal.
Unfortunately, the national championship that was scheduled for March in Moose Jaw, SK
was cancelled due to ongoing Covid restrictions.

Hello AASRA members -
Thanks to everyone who volunteered and came out to ensure that our funding is secured for the next 18 months. That funding will help support our members as they pursue their recreational and sports activities.
Without your support and volunteering, AASRA wouldn't be able to support our members to the extent that we do. Special thanks to those members who volunteered for two shifts. That truly goes above and beyond.
Thanks again and take care everyone.
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.
