The SkiAbility Ottawa 2017 Schedule:

The SkiAbility program operates weekends during July and August.  It provides each skier with a one-half hour session  —  off and on the water.  Participants may sign up for one or more program days on a first come first serve basis.  Some limits may apply.  Training days, clinics and events have been the norm for several years and are listed below.  We continue to look for opportunities to improve the service to our community both in the number of events and the quality of the programs.

See Participation or Volunteers for details and for registration.

Hope to see you on the water!

  * Notes:
  • PL = Program Leader
  • All volunteers are encouraged to attend at least one training day.
  • Training Weekend 1 : core skills for new and returning volunteers
  • Training day 2 : practice makes perfect
  • Program and training dates are "best effort" and may change due to various circumstances

 

All dates are "Shine or Rain" unless otherwise specified.  Only thunder and lightning can keep us off the water. Fortunately, summer thunder storms are usually short lived.

In the event that a session must be canceled due to weather or mechanical problems, we will do our best to find a suitable make-up session. If a make up time cannot be arranged a refund will be considered.

In addition to the above schedule, training for athletes with an interest in adaptive competition will take place on weekdays.

All dates planned are "best effort" but may change, without notice, due to circumstances beyond our control. Stay tuned to the web site for changes.
