This month, we would like to introduce you to our friends at the Missouri Disabled Water Ski Association (MDWSA). This nonprofit has been improving the lives of children and adults with disabilities and special needs since 2007 by providing opportunities for adaptive water skiing. Created for the betterment of adaptive water skiing and the disabled athlete, the program focuses on providing the financial and educational resources to professionally develop, organize, promote, and provide a comprehensive program.
About the Missouri Disabled Water Ski Association Programs
The MDWSA shares that when people with disabilities participate in professionally organized adaptive water skiing programs, it energizes them beyond their rehabilitation as a means to maintain a healthy, active, and well-balanced lifestyle. The nonprofit works with other organizations in the region, provides recreational and competitive water ski showcases, and elevates standards of accessibility and inclusion to waterways. Activities include riding in the boat, jet skiing, inner tubing, and of course water skiing. If that wasn’t enough, they also promote greater public awareness of the disability community and unite the region through water skiing. Access Trax is proud to serve the MDWSA for their accessible pathway needs. Check out some photos below of participants and volunteers having a blast at past events!
