ADAPTIVE SNOWSPORTS

 

Our Adaptive Snowsports programme aims to give disabled people thrills and excitement which improves the mental and physical wellbeing of those taking part.  

We provide lessons on both dry slope and indoor snow. Lessons are delivered by fully qualified adapted skiing and snowboarding instructors from Disability Snowsports UK, supported by our dedicated team of youth workers. 

 

Dry Slope Lessons are delivered at Sandown Ski Slope in Esher. Here we are able to provide stand up ski and sit ski lessons and lessons are £25 each (suggested donation) and includes your slope pass, equipment hire and tuition.  Please contact us for our monthly dry slope schedule.

  

Indoor Snow Lessons are delivered at The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead.  At the indoor snow slope we are able to provide snowboarding, stand up ski and sit ski lessons.  Please contact us for our monthly indoor snow lesson schedule. Lessons are £50 each (suggested donation) and include your slope pass, equipment hire and tuition.

 

These year-round accessible snowsport activities are empowering and fully inclusive. They boost wellbeing and enrich the quality of life of children and adults with life-changing conditions.

 

 

PARKOUR

 

Parkour is a movement activity that promotes health and fitness while also teaching our children and young people to master their bodies and minds. It develops self-efficacy, confidence, problem-solving skills and introduces a holistic, variable movement activity into their lives. 

 

Our parkour classes run separately for different age groups and offer young people the opportunity to take part in a sporting activity which they would not normally do. Classes include running, jumping, climbing, vaulting, rolling and make use of our specialist parkour equipment.
