Disabled Veterans/First Responders Adaptive Ski Day – July 27th 2023
July 27, 2023
We are honored to host our first adaptive ski day that will honor our disabled veterans at our home lake in Webster Massachusetts. This event will allow our disabled military veterans and first responders a chance to have fun on the water as we thank them for their amazing service to our country and community. This event is 100% FREE to our veterans and first responders, however we are asking for a $20 deposit to hold a spot, as spots will be limited to only about 25 participants and we don’t want people to just claim spots and not show up.
Sessions Offered: Morning Session will run from 8:30am-noon. Afternoon session will run from 1pm -4pm. There will be a lunch served for all participants and volunteers at noon.
Deposit: A $20 refundable deposit will be required to hold your spot (the event itself is FREE). Deposits will be returned (upon request) on the day of the event, if the participant does not request their deposit back the funds go into our Adaptive Ski Budget to offset the cost for lunch and help us bring more events like this to Central Massachusetts.
Cancellation Policy: We strive to fill all of our events, and will request a 72 hour notice prior to the event of a cancellation in order to receive your deposit back. The 72 hour window will allow us to contact someone on the wait list or try to fulfill the spot that is being vacated.
SKIERS: After you pay the REFUNDABLE deposit for the event – please fill out the registration form with emergency contact information.
All participants should bring their own bathing suit, towel, sunscreen and snacks to the event. A folding/portable chair is also recommended. If the skier has there own life-jacket, that is also recommended, however there will be jackets on hand for those that need them. Skis, Ropes, and all other water ski equipment will be provided by the Webster Water Ski Collective for this event.
Yes- we will allow for non-participants and parents to watch from shore. Due to insurance restrictions, only approved volunteers and participants will be allowed to handle equipment or be in the water or boats during the event.
Insurance will be provided via USA Water Ski and Wake Sports, whom have a rich history of sponsoring water ski tournaments and water sport events. Each participant and volunteer will need to be a USA Water Ski for that day of the event, and USA Water Ski offers a one day pass for $10 that will be covered as part of the registration fee. Any participant that needs a day pass may get one at the event, and must sign a waiver form. The insurance covers us for general liability as well as for any injuries that might take place. Safety is always our #1 goal and we will have a designated certified safety official on site in addition to our certified instructors and boat drivers to make this as safe and fun of an experience as possible for our participants and guest.
