Highlight of the Week

Adaptive Sports Association will kick off the winter season with volunteer training. ASA is a nonprofit sports and recreation outfitter for people with disabilities. Volunteer training is free. Volunteers are needed daily to teach ski and snowboard lessons. No experience is necessary, but volunteers must be at least intermediate skiers or snowboarders. Volunteers also earn discounted skiing at Purgatory Resort and college credit through arranged internships.

Orientation times are: Wednesday (Nov. 17): Returning volunteer orientation: 10 to 11 a.m. or 5 to 6 p.m.; new volunteer orientation: 11 a.m. to noon or 6 to 7 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 20): Returning volunteer orientation: 10 to 11 a.m.; new volunteer orientation: 11 a.m. to noon. Volunteers need to attend only one orientation. Orientations will be held at ASA headquarters, 463 Turner Drive, No. 105. Participants are asked to wear a mask. ASA’s programs enrich and transform the lives of people with disabilities through sports and recreation. By working with participants to overcome physical and cognitive challenges in a safe, supportive environment, ASA volunteers help participants “explore possibilities.” For more information, call 259-0374 or visit asadurango.com.
