We are committed to accessibility and engagement in active living opportunities for all its citizens. Sport helps to strengthen our community by building social capital, strengthening family bonds, helping newcomers to integrate more quickly, fostering greater inclusion of people with disabilities, providing facilities to train and compete in and supporting Red Deerians to be “Active for Life.”
