ASF Race Team – Virtual Workouts
The Adaptive Sports Foundation’s Race Team is a close knit group that have spent years training,
competing and supporting each other.  When the pandemic hit and required everyone to quarantine, ASF Race Team members and coaches were forced to cut their snowsports season short. However, within a couple weeks, the team organized thanks to the efforts of volunteer coaches Mary, Sandy and Sadie, a virtual weekly Zoom workout.  In addition to the weekly workouts, the team also competed in the Special Olympics of New York Sports (SONY) Season at Home Fitness Competition of Champions.
