Burke Rehabilitation Center’s growing Adaptive Sports program is offering, for the first time, a series adaptive alpine skiing clinics this year. This February and March, Burke is pleased to offer Adaptive Alpine Skiing Clinics in partnership with Leaps of Faith in Sandy Hook, CT. We invite individuals with any and all disabilities to hit the slopes this winter for adaptive skiing at Mt. Southington, which is centrally located in Plantsville, CT. The Adaptive Alpine Skiing Clinics will offer both beginner and advanced skiing classes with certified instructors. All adaptive equipment will be provided free of charge.
Adaptive Snow Ski Registration: To register, all participants must complete and send the registration form, waiver and a $25 deposit, which will be refunded to you on the day of the event. Please visit the Leaps of Faith Forms Page for the registration and waiver forms.
