Adaptive Recreation

Adaptive Recreation

Adaptive Recreation is a program that provides social and recreational services to all patrons with physical or developmental disabilities. Our goal is to offer a positive and supportive learning environment where individuals can explore new recreation skills, develop socialization skills through friendships and have opportunities to gain a sense of independence in their community. Inclusive recreation takes place when individuals of all abilities participate in a recreational activity together in an attempt to decrease barriers to leisure by utilizing adaptations and programming accommodations. The concept of inclusive recreation makes it possible for individuals to choose from a vast array of programs offered by BREC across the parish.

Adaptive 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
