Adaptable, Accessible, Fun For All
The WELL is committed to providing access to ALL students of Sacramento State. All-In-Recreation or AIR is an opportunity for ALL to get involved and to get active together. Inclusion is a philosophy that we at The WELL embrace; Inclusion is going beyond having an accessible facility by actively supporting the participation of people with and without disabilities.
The AIR program provides the opportunity for students of all abilities to participate in adaptive sports and recreational programs, and also works to provide accommodations for students with disabilities to engage in other services offered by The WELL.
