Indoor WC Athletics Program

Hello Wheelchair Athletics Enthusiasts!
It’s time once again for us to shift gears and transition back into our indoor wheelchair athletics programming. Please find information below on our roller sessions, Oval T&F program, and the dates of our weekend clinics. For liability reasons, a yearly BCWSA membership will be required to regularly participate in any of our programs, which costs $10. If you are unsure of the status of your BCWSA membership for this year, please feel free to contact me.
Looking forward to another great year of indoor training!
