All Can Ski Delivers Fun & Freedom for People with Disabilities - San Antonio Sports hosts annual event at SeaWorld San Antonio
Susan Blackwood

July, 2009

Persons with disabilities of all ages are invited to register now to experience the sport of water skiing at All Can Ski, hosted by San Antonio Sports at SeaWorld San Antonio, August 25- 27. Registration is available online at

SanAntonioSports.org and the $35 fee per skier covers instruction, skiing, lunch, and a t-shirt. The registration deadline is Wednesday, August 19.

Started in 1992, All Can Ski was created by Warm Springs Rehabilitation Hospital to provide persons with physical disabilities the opportunity to experience waterskiing. Such disabilities include spinal cord injuries, spina bifida, amputees, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis. Recently, participants have also included wounded military men and women, many of whom are being treated at San Antonio’s Center for the Intrepid.

“One of the greatest things about All Can Ski is the freedom that people with disabilities experience on the water, says Ross Davis, San Antonio Sports creative director and Paralympic gold medalist, who has been involved with All Can Ski for years. “With 17 years of experience, the volunteers and staff can put anybody behind the boat to cut up waves.”

All Can Ski is the largest waterskiing clinic for individuals with disabilities in the United States. This year, 100 individuals are expected to participate. San Antonio Sports is partnering with the Warm Springs Foundation and Texas Adaptive Aquatics to continue this tradition in San Antonio.

For more information, visit SanAntonioSports.org or call 820-2100.
