Dive into a sport that anyone can be active in. Or take the plunge into competitive swimming. Swimming is a sport to be enjoyed regardless of your level of disability. And it's a great sport to enjoy with family and friends. Today's waterproof prosthetic limbs add to the experience for amputees. For those with visual impairments, tappers alert the swimmer when they're approaching the pool wall. Synchronized/artistic swimming for athletes with disabilities is also making a big splash.
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
