Thanks to our volunteers!

Each year, over 100 volunteers help teach adapted summer activities with the ASF. Among them are instructors, assistant instructors, boat and sea-doo operators, administrative and equipment support staff.

It is thanks to all these volunteers that we have had so much success with our summer program!

At the ASF, we are not shy!

In 2021, our volunteers will be there to help you discover new summer activities such as para-cycling and adapted paddle boarding. We look forward to helping you discover these sports in an environment that is as safe as it is friendly!

Some details about our NEW Para-Cycling Program

2021 marks the start of an unprecedented collaboration between the Adaptive Sports Foundation (ASF) and the Centre National de Cyclisme de Bromont (CNCB). Thanks to the expertise of the CNCB coaches and in particular Mr. Éric Van Den Eynde, one of the most experienced coaches in Canada in cycling and para-cycling, our team of ASF certified para-cycling guides will allow you to discover or rediscover the pleasure of safe cycling.

 

Participants

Each person is different and over time, adapted sports allows you to gain confidence, learn new skills, live experiences in an environment that gradually becomes more familiar and above all, create lasting memories. After reading the answers you provide in the participant registration form for the 2021 summer season, we will contact you and start planning a tailor-made activity.

There are some restrictions we must respect as long as COVID-19 is present. People who are more independent or accompanied by a caregiver will be more easily matched with volunteers for the requested activities.

A para-cycling activity lasts about 2 hours and through this session we will welcome you, we will assess your needs and you will be positioned on a piece of equipment. Then we will do a little theory before moving on to practice. Depending on your abilities, we will go on a first outing over a safe distance for you and you will be supervised by two volunteers. We hope to peak your interest in the sport and see you back with us for a second session.
