YOU CAN DO IT!
As the northern training site for the British Disabled Water Ski Association, our aim is to introduce newcomers to this thrilling sport who due to their disabilities have not considered such a challenge is possible. We also hope to further your skills to a higher level so you ultimately may have the confidence to ski at an able bodied ski site nearer your home.
Whether you're visually impaired, a leg amputee, in a wheelchair or have learning disabilities our Centre has the equipment and guidance for you to forget the restrictions of land and feel the freedom of water - a visit to us can often be a life changing experience! For example, life long wheel chair users need exercise and may never have had the opportunity to take control of something fast in their life…..water skiing on a sit ski provides an outrageous adrenaline rush but is safe and helps to keep your body in good condition.
We do hold special taster days if you feel there is safety in numbers (!) and hold courses through organizations like Back Up for the spinally injured and The Winged Fellowship Trust - holidays for the visually impaired.
