The overall impact of the Adaptive Contact (ACT) Database is that it becomes a simple and effective online information resource that allows effective collaboration and connectivity between organizations and communities throughout a Province, State or Region.
What is an act database?
Adaptive Contact (ACT) databases provide an online resource that allows end users the ability to access information on adaptive programming available in the sport and recreation community. It is an information resource that can lead to inclusive opportunities for participation at any point along the Long Term Athlete/Participant Development (LTA/PD) pathway. It is designed as a one-stop search option for the adaptive community that remains current, is continuously updated, and remains sustainable over the long term.
The ACT Database provides participation based information as to inclusive/accessible offerings, whether it is a program, facility or service. The information it provides maximizes the ability for a daptive audiences to access information that will conect them to sport and recreation opportunities province wide. For example, a soccer program that offers inclusive adaptive openings, or a yoga program that accommodates accessible yoga instruction.
