On Nov. 30, UVic’s Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities – better known as the CARSA facility – will host an Education Day and Open House.

Education Day takes place in the morning on Nov. 30 where people can learn more about disabilities and why it’s so important to incorporate inclusive values into programming. This event will feature guest speakers Annie Lau from the Sport for Life Society and Mike Lonergan from BC Blind Sports.

In the afternoon on Nov. 30, CARSA will host the ProMotion Open House, where everyone is invited to try different adapted sports and learn about the local organizations that provide these opportunities throughout the year.
