The Adaptive Sports Foundation (ASF) was established in 1995 by Peter M. Treacy, a disabled skier from Knowlton, Quebec. Following an accident that left him an amputee, Peter’s dream was to start a ski school for children and adults with physical disabilities. His mission was clear: to establish, operate and maintain educational programs that encourage individuals with physical disabilities to discover new abilities through winter and summer sports.
The Adaptive Sports Foundation is a leader in teaching adaptive sports. The passion and dedication of our volunteers and students is the basis for this success. Our objective is to expand our programs and offer more adaptive outdoor sports opportunities.
Our mission is to offer educational sports programs to individuals with physical disabilities in order to encourage them to develop new skills through outdoor sports. We are committed to helping individuals develop self-confidence, personal motivation and greater physical strength, all within the framework of an activity they can enjoy with their family and friends.
The ASF is a registered non-profit organization, which relies solely on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations to offer quality programs for people living with physical disabilities. Such support allows us to purchase specialized equipment, train volunteers and to reduce the cost of program participation.
