Benefits of Adaptive Water Skiing
for the Disabled
Water skiing for the disabled, also known as Adaptive Water Skiing, along with many other wheelchair and disabled sports, play an important role in the post-rehabilitation process of the person with a physical disability.

It provides them with the opportunity to improve their physical, emotional, and social well-being through weekly and monthly beginner and intermediate ski clinics.

By getting involved in such a program, it helps them set goals for success while experiencing the enjoyment of a recreational program, and it allows them to be competitive again or maybe competitive in a sport for the very first time in their lives.
