Bridging the Gap (BTG) is a national initiative that encourages people with disabilities to get active and stay active. By hosting a series of “Have a Go” days and connecting with partners across the country to build beginner programs, BTG helps reduce barriers to sport participation.
What is Bridging the Gap? - Each province might be different in what programs they offer but, Bridging the Gap, Getting Physically Active is a program specifically designed to help you become aware of the sport and recreation options available, and to try out wheelchair sports of your choice. The program currently promotes and supports Rugby, Basketball, and Tennis, but if you are interested in something else, just let us know and we'll help you get connected to the right people or program. Whatever wheelchair sport you decide to participate in, BTG is designed to help you get involved and stay involved.
