Volunteering with the Adaptive Sports Program New Mexico is a way to touch the lives of people with disabilities in New Mexico. Our many volunteers will tell you that there is nothing quite like helping a person with a disability experience the joy of outdoor recreation!
Our volunteer instructors receive ongoing training to provide the best adaptive lessons for our athletes, while keeping costs for athletes low by donating their time and expertise. If you have skills in any of the sports we offer, or want to help “behind the scenes” with special events or projects, we want you to be part of our team! Please fill out our New Volunteer Application to become a volunteer. Contact Us if you have additional questions.
Please remember to print, sign and bring your Waiver to the next event you volunteer at.
Once we have reviewed your submission we will be in touch.
If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 505-570-5710.
The ASPNM Ski/Snowboard program is staffed by a yearly average of 250 volunteer instructors, many certified by Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA). Instructors must be over the age of 18 and be intermediate to advanced skiers or snowboarders. New volunteer instructors receive four days of intensive, hands on training with yearly updates. Training includes disability specific issues such as medications, behaviors, equipment fit, teaching styles, etc.
Each volunteer is asked to contribute six teaching days each winter. Opportunities to teach additional days are available. The program also offers some non-skiing positions as well. Instructor incentives as well as other important program information are discussed at the yearly Volunteer Orientation held in November, both in Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
During the summer months, we offer many multi-week, single-day, and overnight Adaptive Sports events. The best way to find out about these events is to read our emails, or check this page to register for the events where you can help. Please remember that registration is required for each event!
Training is provided for volunteers who instruct for our summer sports. These trainings happen early in the Spring or Summer, and some larger events have training included the first day. Please view our volunteer registration page to see our current volunteer needs.
This is your home base for volunteering with ASPNM! Please read on to view our season calendar register for our current volunteer opportunities, or read educational resources and training information for adaptive teaching. Thank you for all you do!
