Cruisers Sports for the Physically Disabled was formed in September 1986, by a dedicated group of parents who wanted their children to be able to participate in sports. Recreational and competitive opportunities are provided in adapted sports including boccia, track and field, para ice hockey, wheelchair basketball, as well as a multi-sports program. These programs promote the development of teamwork, confidence, independence as well as the social interaction of being a part of a sports organization.
Cruisers Sports has since evolved into one of the largest sports organizations for people with physical disabilities. Boasting well over 125 members, the organization is 100% volunteer driven and is overseen by a twelve person board of directors. Due to the organization’s sheer size and athletic diversity, Cruisers Sports is one of the most recognizable brands in the adapted sports community.
Several Cruisers Sports athletes and coaches have risen to the pinnacle of their respective sports, representing the organization and country at national and international sporting events including the National Championships, Parapan Am Games, World Championships and the Paralympics.
As a recognized charitable organization #89955 5122 RR0001, all funds raised are put towards the programs offered and the expensive specialized equipment needed for persons with disabilities to participate in various sports.
