The Waterloo Region Track 3 Program was developed in order to teach young children with disabilities to ski. In 1989, the Chicopee Ski Club in Kitchener was approached to establish a pilot project.
Our program started with six students and eight volunteer instructors, and enjoyed tremendous success from the beginning. Each year since inception, the program has almost doubled in size and the waiting list of students wishing to enter the program continues to grow.
Because of the need within our community, the Waterloo Region Track 3 Program has evolved into an organization with a mission to provide programs for the disabled. In 1993, the Waterloo Region Track 3 Ski School was incorporated and registered as a charitable organization. The ski school is an affiliated minor sport organization with the Cities of Kitchener and Waterloo.source: www.waterlootrack3.com
