Vision

The Alberta Racquetball Association's vision is to make racquetball accessible to all Albertans: to be a national leader in programming, athlete development, and good governance.


About Us


Our Mission
Our mission is to facilitate the participation and enjoyment of racquetball through the development of programs, resources, coaches, and officials. We strive to build a strong future and legacy for racquetball by supporting competitive athletes and fostering life-long participants. We endeavour to increase involvement and accessibility at all levels through promotion, advocacy, and funding.

Our Values
In contributing to a strong and vibrant Albertan sport system, the Alberta Racquetball Association is committed to being an accountable and effective organization by promoting and living the following values in our work and through our actions:

Sportsmanship: We promote an attitude of sportsmanship, whereby the goal is not simply to win, but to have fun and give one's best effort in the pursuit of victory.

Respect: We foster an environment of respect, striving for equal opportunities and maintaining policies that are free from discrimination or bias.

Community: We support the development of the racquetball community at large by encouraging mentorship and facilitating program involvement.

Leadership: We develop athlete leaders, who lead by example, inspire others to excel and contribute to meaningful change where they live, work and play.


Our Partners
Our partnerships with coaches, league directors, club managers, voluteers, Racquetball Canada, the Alberta Sport Connection (formerly ASRPWF), and the Alberta Liquor & Gaming Commision (AGLC), allow us to meet the needs of racquetball players throughout the Province of Alberta.

                


Volunteers
Volunteers are the strength of the ARA. Each year, more than 40 individuals contribute their time and talent to the ARA. These volunteers contribute to every aspect of the the organization; they work alongside staff in a variety of capacities from organizing tournaments to running leagues, coaching, officiating, fundraising, to providing guidance through the our board and committees. If you are interested in volunteering for the ARA, please contact us directly.


AGM
The ARA Annual General Meeting is a time to reflect on accomplishments of the past year and review the financial statements. This is also a time where the ARA honors deserving individuals.
