Highlight of the week

The Adapted Sports Association will launch the winter season with volunteer training. ASA is a non-profit sports and recreation provider for people with disabilities. Volunteer training is free. Volunteers are needed daily to give ski and snowboard lessons. No experience is necessary, but volunteers must be at least intermediate skiers or snowboarders. Volunteers also earn discounted ski credits at the Purgatory Resort and college through organized internships.

Orientation hours are: Wednesday (November 17): Orientation for returning volunteers: 10 am to 11 am or 5 pm to 6 pm; orientation of new volunteers: 11 a.m. to noon or 6 to 7 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 20): orientation of returning volunteers: 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. new orientation for volunteers: 11 a.m. to noon. Volunteers only need to attend one orientation. Orientation sessions will be held at ASA Headquarters, 463 Turner Drive, # 105. Participants are requested to wear a mask. ASA’s programs enrich and transform the lives of people with disabilities through sport and recreation. By working with participants to overcome physical and cognitive challenges in a safe and supportive environment, ASA volunteers help participants “explore the possibilities”.
