ADA visits Texas Adaptive Aquatics!
A few weeks ago Jason and I attended a Texas Adaptive Aquatics event at Moody Gardens in Galveston. While there we had the opportunity to water ski, sail, and kayak all around the bay. It was awesome to see that quite a few of our customer were in attendance and having fun. For me this was the first time I had water skied since my injury; it was an awesome experience and I will definitely do it again. The best thing about this event was that people with all different types of disabilities were able to participate and have a great time. If you haven’t experienced the thrill of water skiing, I would highly recommend contacting Texas Adaptive Aquatics to see when their next event is.
A little more about TAA: “Texas Adaptive Aquatics features an outstanding adaptive water skiing program that allows people with physical and/or mental disabilities the opportunity to discover the thrill and excitement of water skiing, sailing, and kayaking. T.A.A. founded in 1989 and incorporated in the State of Texas in 1990, is a non-profit sports training program for children and adults with disabilities.T.A.A. is the leader in teaching techniques for disabled skiers. Our aim is to continue to help improve the skiing ability and skills of our participants so they can enjoy skiing away from the clinics with their family and friends. Our programs are available to only physically and/or mentally challenged individuals or groups with the desire to learn how to water ski for the first time, or to rediscover an activity thought to have been lost due to an accident or injury.” For more information and details, please visit: www.taasports.org
