The Wolverines:

  • Promotes accessibility, participation and fun. Our focus is on integrated programs that are enjoyable and meaningful to participants.
  • Are run by a volunteer Board of Directors. In 1998, the Wolverines employed a Program Director to increase community awareness and to develop new programs.
  • Have a loan process in place with a variety of equipment for you to use. Call us to see if we can meet your needs.
  • Want to hear from you! We are receptive to your ideas and opinions for our future programs.

We are a proud member of the Chamber of Commerce (Grande Prairie & District)

With great fundraising efforts we are able to offer free registrations to those on AISH, we ask that these members give back to the wolverines by volunteering for our association through the year.
