adaptive sports foundation

The Adaptive Sports Foundation (ASF) was established in 1995 by Peter M. Treacy, a one-legged skier from Knowlton, Québec. An amputee due to an accident, Mr. Treacy’s dream was to start a ski school for children and adults with physical disabilities. His mission was clear: the creation, operation and establishment of educational sports programs that would encourage people with disabilities to discover new possibilities through the practice of winter and summer sports. 
Many years later, the ASF continues to offer the chance of unique experiences for people with reduced mobility. Three regular programs are offered, mainly in Montérégie and Estrie: a summer program that provides an introduction to nautical sports, a winter program that allows participants to take adaptive alpine skiing or snowboarding courses, and a program to assist wounded soldiers. Apart from the physical benefits, these activities allow the participants to break their isolation, regain self-confidence and increase their autonomy.
