Green Mountain Adaptive Sports summer programs, including Adaptive Paddle Boarding, Kayaking, Swimming and Movement Classes have resumed for the upcoming season.
GMAS is still accepting applications for all of the programs.
GMAS has formed several new partnerships this year to diversify the recreational opportunities offered to local and area disabled athletes.
Our latest partner, Elevate, operates in a brand new indoor facility located in Stowe, Vermont. Elevate’s movement classes are taught by trained professionals and focus on developing a wide range of skills including agility, balance, coordination, and strength. GMAS offers scholarships for one-on-one sessions for anyone eager to increase their skills on the climbing wall, the obstacle courses, or the trampolines.
GMAS’s new Adaptive Kayaking Program is extremely popular and is offered through a partnership with Northeast Disabled Athletic Association on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Waterbury Reservoir.
Adaptive Paddle Board lessons are taking place at the Waterbury Reservoir with trained instructors from Umiak Outfitters on Mondays and Tuesdays.
The GMAS Swimming Program held at the Swimming Hole in Stowe continues to grow and is worth considering for anyone who loves, or wants to get more comfortable in the water. The coaching can cover everything from being safe in the water to competitive stroke development.
Adaptive athletes of all ages and ability interested in any, or all the offered programs are invited to visit the GMAS webpage at www.greenmtnadaptive.org to review each program’s description and fill out an application to participate.
