Fun. Exciting. Significant.

That’s what volunteering with WDSRA is all about! While enjoying the social and recreational aspects of every program or event, our participants are getting to engage with you and the community around them. While lending a hand in the office or on the court, you are contributing to the success of each individual we serve.

Volunteers are vital to WDSRA. Your support helps keep program fees affordable, allows us to offer close staffing ratios and one-on-one instruction.  It also help us to increase our programming capacity and deliver the high quality programs our families expect.

THANK YOU for making a difference today!
