Testimonials

Here’s just a sample of some of the great things folks are saying about PPSC!

 

“My son, is a young man with complex special needs.  Your instructor is doing a tremendous job with him.  He intuitively   understood how to deal with his physical limitations and his unique way of communicating.  He treats him with respect and kindness.  Most importantly he treats  him like just another kid.  We, as parents, could not ask for more.”

“As a quadriplegic, I am obviously limited in the sports that I can now participate in.  Being an athlete prior to being injured in 87’, I have always looked for activities that would make me feel like I was being physically active again.    Thanks for  introducing me to this great sport! I also can’t say enough about the whole staff at Piers Park.”

“I feel very lucky to have such an experienced sailor as an instructor.  He is not only a great instructor , but he was a nice kid and became a good friend.  His teaching skills made it very easy to learn and allowed me to test my knowledge of the things he was teaching on regular basis.”

“This program was one of the greatest things I could have done for my autistic son! He not only learned a new skill which is his new love, but he learned to welcome others into his “world” and the meaning of teamwork. The program also challenged him to listen, and focus, and learn which he did. I was so surprised that he had actually advanced to the white level, and he was over joyed that he did it all on his own!! There are so many positive things to say about the program! The instructors were phenomenal! They were all patient and kind, and willing to work with my son at his pace. He is very much looking forward to attend next summer, and we are both praying that he makes it in!”
