TAA, founded in 1989, is a non-profit sports training program for children and adults with disabilities. Programs are available to physically and/or mentally challenged individuals or groups with the desire to learn how to water ski for the first time, or to rediscover an activity thought to have been lost due to an accident or injury. Their aim is to help participants improve their skiing ability and skills so they can enjoy skiing away from the clinics with their family and friends. T.A.A. provides water skiing clinics throughout the United States, and reaches hundreds of disabled persons each year. Instructors are available from entry through advanced levels at your lake or at their base of operation at Lake Houston. Special sessions are held in specific areas such as slalom, jumping, tricks and tournament practice.
