The roots of the ICHA were planted in 1977 at Glengarda School when Egidio Novelletto began a soccer program for mentally challenged individuals. The Association was granted charitable, non profit status on July 22, 1987.
Since that time, the Association has taken on the responsibility of delivering a number of additional social and recreational activities. They include social activities designed to integrate our membership into the community. The ICHA Valentines day, Halloween and Christmas dinner / dances are filled with friendship, good food, dancing and fun. In addition to the soccer program, track & field, bocce ball, poly hockey (floor hockey) and basketball have been added to meet the needs and demands of these special individuals. These programs are currently run year round out of the Novelletto Rosati Complex on various weekday evenings. ICHA social members participate in many out of town soccer tournaments throughout the summer and have experienced the pleasure of traveling as a group to such places as Cleveland, Ohio (clog dancing competition ), the Thousand Islands, African Lion Safari and Canadas Wonderland .
The ICHA has established a fund to offer bursaries at both the University of Windsor and St Clair College. Bursary funds are accessible to people with physical and mental disabilities. In recognition of an individual who contributed greatly to the early success of the ICHA, the Dario Rossi Memorial Bursary was established and is available to an ICHA volunteer who is moving into a post secondary school environment.
Today the ICHA is one of the largest organizations of its kind in Ontario with a social membership of 200 individuals and a voting membership of 80. It is important to note that our Association is run entirely through the efforts of our volunteers. Our social members range in age from 10 to over 50, with the average age of 25.
Membership in the ICHA is open to all people with a physical or mental disability in Windsor and Essex County. The word Italian in our name reflects the ethnic background of our founding members and recognizes their generous contributions and the commitment theyve given to the special individuals in our organization over the years. In October of 2002, the ICHA opened the Novelletto Rosati Complex with the ultimate goal of providing a home base for all people with a physical or mental disability in our community. Through the generosity of all levels of government and the overwhelming support of businesses and individuals in Windsor and throughout Essex County, the ICHA was successful in this endeavor.
If you know of someone that could benefit from our programs or is interested in volunteering their service with the ICHA, please have them contact us. Inquiries can be sent to:

GREETINGS FROM THE I.C.H.A. PRESIDENTIt is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all the participants, coaches, supporters and volunteers to the 2013 ICHA HandiCAPABLE Indoor Soccer Tournament. The ICHA has proudly hosted this tournament every year since 1988 and we are pleased that the tournament continues to attract special athletes.
The ICHA is a volunteer based organization that supports disabled people through recreational and social programs through funds raised in the community. For twenty six years we have held this tournament to provide disabled athletes the opportunity to display their skills and talent in friendly competition. Our luncheons, banquet and award presentations have made each tournament a special occasion for each participant.
This year our athletes will benefit from a new playing surface and an open field concept. A new 1 day tournament format is being introduced which we trust will be convenient for everyone.
We are indebted to all our supporters and volunteers who contribute to the success of our event. Best wishes to all our participants, families and supporters for an enjoyable and memorable tournament.
Share the Spirit,
Robert HayesICHA President
