About the DSAA
In 1994, The Disabled Sailing Association of Alberta was formed with the goal of establishing permanent sailing programs for children and adults with disabilities in Alberta. Now, after many seasons of successful operations, thousands of Alberta have enjoyed the therapeutic and rehabilitative benefits of sailing.
The DSAA is a largely volunteer operated organization that has grown into a recognized community service, partnering with more than 35 local agencies providing recreational opportunities for individuals with disabilities. The success of sailing as a recreational and rehabilitation program is evident in both the growing numbers of people that participate in these programs and the enthusiastic support that DSA Alberta has received from the disabled communities, community organizations and funding agencies.
The Association looks forward to new and returning members enjoying the independence and freedom that everyone enjoys when wind, sun and spray join forces to make a perfect sailing day.
