Recreation NL is the managing partners of the initiative.
Recreation NL works to support parasport development in Newfoundland and Labrador. Parasport has become a term that describes sport for persons with a physical disability that parallels able-bodied sport and is often offered as a component of an existing sport.

The You Can Play Too! workshop is a resource that Recreation NL developed in partnership with the City of St. John’s to facilitate inclusive recreation in the community. It is a half-day course that provides information on how to create an inclusive environment, how to adapt activities and provides behavioural management techniques.
Course participants receive a manual which provides disability information as well as forms such as medical information forms, incident reporting, emergency plans, accessibility check lists etc.
