BC Blind Sports offers opportunities for members to participate in community activities, recreation programs and competitive sport programs.
Our programs are designed to encourage recreation and sport to individuals of all ages and levels. We will assist parents in getting started with their children into community programs, school programs and community club programs. Our adult programs are available to help those who are interested in improving their fitness, whether it’s recreational or competitive, in their local recreation centre or club programs, in their local communities.
All individuals have unique life circumstances that influences and directs their personal strengths, goals, and development of opportunities. Managing with no sight or low vision also relates to life circumstances in terms of adapting to challenges and achieving successful outcomes from their goals. Outcomes such as goals set for valued participation in active and healthy living through recreation and sport.
We will assist parents, teachers, coaches, and activity leaders in making sure that their programs have the tools necessary to include someone with a visual impairment into their program.
SCHOOL CHILDREN AND YOUTH PROGRAMS
ADULT PROGRAMS - Our adult programs are available to help those who are interested in improving their fitness, whether it’s recreational or competitive, in their local recreation centre or club programs, in their local communities.
If you are an adult or senior who has lost vision recently and would like to re enter into a sport you participated as a sighted person or maybe you have never been involved in recreation or sport and want to try it, we can help you make that transition and work with you to find the right program.
Recreational Activities - These programs include things like joining a walking program or doing one on your on with a volunteer. Going to your local gym and doing your fitness training (at your level). These can be individual programs where you set the pace and time to be involved. We will assist you in finding a volunteer to do the program with you. If equipment is needed we will assist in helping you making sure it’s what you need.
