Stouffville Recreation Creates New Parasport Sampling Event, With Support Of Parasport Ontario & Jumpstart

The Town of Stouffville is excited to introduce a unique event this holiday season: ParaSport Sampler – Have-a-Go Day! With support from ParaSport Ontario, Stouffville welcomes two National-level athletes to support learning and engagement in various parasport opportunities throughout the day.

On Saturday, January 7, families and children 6+ are invited to join us at the Leisure Centre Gymnasium (2 Park Drive) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to experience and engage in a variety of parasports.

The Town’s Recreation Department created this event to continue to prioritize our commitment to ensuring our programs are inclusive and fun for the entire community. There are a number of activities that can be experienced during the event, including wheelchair basketball, para (sledge) hockey, sitting volleyball, wheelchair handball and more!
