Manitoba Cerebral Palsy Sports Association

Para Storm Swim Club logo

Manitoba Cerebral Palsy Sports Association is a charitable organization dedicated to providing training, competitive opportunities, physical fitness and team community for youth and adults with physical disabilities. Our primary program is the Para Storm Swim Club.


The Para Storm Swim Club offers competitive and fitness swim program for persons with physical disabilities who are interested in challenging themselves in a supportive team environment.  All abilities are welcome. No swimming experience required to join us!  We are open to all children, youth and young adults.

Everyone needs a place where they feel welcome, equal and accepted for who they are.  We instill in our athletes that sense of being, belonging and acceptance.  We challenge our athletes to set goals, work hard and optimize their abilities.  It is a supportive environment for athletes, parents and families alike.  Due to the generosity of Sport Manitoba and other community funders, we are able to offer a subsidized program. Financial assistance is also available.



Our program uses an athletes first philosophy and stresses developing great people with great swimming skills.  Competitive swimming empowers athletes who might otherwise struggle with self-identity, self-esteem or feelings of not belonging.  Our program is a place to call their own, set goals, challenge themselves and truly be a competitive athlete.


The Para Storm’s home is Boni-Vital Pool, which has been newly renovated for 2021.  Depending on the specific program, athletes swim/train between 3-5 times a week.  We also have a regular dryland training program for our competitive team at the High Performance Centre in Sport Manitoba.  The competitive team also attends meets and competitions throughout the swimming year.

However, we are a team that also values community and diversity.  We have regular scheduled social events, pot lucks, bowling nights, as well as giving back to the community by participating in the CP Stationary Bike Race and Cruising Down the Crescent.  The Para Storm Swim team is a warm, inviting group that develops athletes both in and out of the pool. 

During COVID we have been in the pool and gym under strict Return to Play procedures. 

During Code Red lock downs, we have regularly scheduled Zoom workouts each week.  This keeps the team connected, fit and feeling great.
