CADS Edmonton is dedicated to creating an open community of athletes, instructors and supporters where everyone is welcomed. We continue to celebrate a love of adaptive sport in all of its forms!

What Our Students and Volunteers Say:

"When I found CADS, they were so nice, and they try many different things to see what you need. They include all people with disabilities, and the people and volunteers are very nice. I have skied with CADS for 25 years, and I can use a sit-ski now. Thank you CADS for all that you do!"
