SouthEastern Wisconsin Adaptive Ski Program is a voluntary organization that provides alpine ski and snowboard lessons for people with disabilities. Training instructors is costly. The Hartford DSUSA (Disabled Sports USA) Ski Spectacular for 2018 is an adaptive ski and snowboarding event with three areas: race, instructor training, and lessons. The instructor training and lessons are conducted by the PSIA Adaptive Academy. The race portion is for try-outs for the US Disabled Ski and Snowboarding team for the upcoming season. SEWASP tries each year to send two of its members to the instructor training.
Another event that SEWASP supports with volunteers is the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic. It is typically held in Aspen in the spring. It is sponsored by the DAV. Disabled veterans get ski and snowboard instruction along with the opportunity to try other winter sports. The DAV is always looking for volunteer adaptive ski and snowboard instructors to conduct lessons.
