This summer we are pleased to offer TWO Adaptive Water Skiing Clinics in partnership with Leaps of Faith Water Skiing Club (LOF) in Sandy Hook, CT. Celebrating its 20th year in operation, LOF provides safe, challenging and fun water and snow skiing programs for children, adults and veterans with disabilities. Last year this 501 [c] 3 non-profit foundation served more than 600 disabled individuals! We are honored to have this organization and their certified instructors partner with us for our clinics this summer.
No experience required—people of all ages, abilities and physical function are encouraged to take part.
REGISTRATION FOR THESE CLINICS IS MANDATORY, along with completion of required paperwork and a $20 deposit, ($10 of which is a suggested donation).
