Advance Reservations Required
Due to high demand for lessons and our desire to make our program available to as many people as possible, advance reservations are a MUST. Please realize the number of students we can accommodate relates directly to the number of volunteer instructors we have on any given day.

How do I make a reservation?
Individual reservations may be made no earlier than one calendar month prior to the date of a lesson except for holiday reservations.*(see below for specific dates to make holiday time reservations).  NOTE: Reservations for the weekend of January 25 & 26 will be taken on December 26, as the office is closed on December 25th for the Christmas Holiday.

Step 1:  Submit a Participant Registration Form.  This form must be updated each season.  You will not be able to secure a reservation until it is received.

Step 2:  (a) Make a reservation request online at www.adaptivesportsfoundation.org  or 

(b) Make a reservation request by calling the office at (518) 734-5070.   We are unable to accept reservations by fax or email.  Reservations by phone or online can be made starting at 9:00 am.  You can book both weekend days one month prior to the Saturday date.  For example, if you’d like to make a reservation for the weekend of December 14, we will begin taking reservations for that weekend at 9:00 am on November 14.  If you wish to make a reservation for a Sunday only, be sure to call one calendar month in advance of the Saturday date.  For example if you’d like to make a reservation for Sunday, January 5, you should call on December 4 at 9:00 am.

Mid-week lessons may be booked one month prior to the Wednesday date and may be booked together as well.

Step 3:  You will be notified via email if we can confirm your reservation.*    Please realize the number of participants we can accommodate relates directly to the number of volunteer instructors we have on any given day.  If you do not receive a confirmation email, you will be put on our waitlist and notified if an opening becomes available.
