Assisting Educational Sports
Learn how RMA can help support school sport programs, including downhill skiing, snowboarding and sit skiing and cross country skiing.
How We Can Help
RMA is committed to assisting individuals learning adaptive sport. Our partnerships with local schools have lead to direct involvement in teaching students with special needs to ski, snowboard and sit ski when they are taking part in a school program on the mountain. When lessons are based at the Canmore Nordic Centre, RMA will help liaise with them to assist where needed.
