Inclusive Recreation

Therapeutic/Inclusive Recreation

BREC is committed to an inclusive approach to recreation. Inclusion consists of individuals with and without disabilities participating in recreation activities in their community. Inclusion makes it possible for individuals to choose from a vast array of programs that BREC offers and promotes the opportunity for people of all abilities to play where they choose.

Inclusive Athletics

Through a partnership with The ARC of Baton Rouge, BREC offers inclusive leagues to participants ages 3 and older, with and without disabilities. These noncompetitive leagues teach the sport, while participants enjoy their peers. Register online at arcbatonrouge.org
