Adaptive Recreation (AIR)
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 with and without disabilities 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.

Special Olympics Unified Soccer

The WELL Lawn (South Greens)
The WELL is excited to partner with Special Olympics Northern California to provide a Unified Sports soccer program. Unified Sports programs include individuals with developmental disabilities (Unified Athletes) and without disabilities (Unified Partners) playing on the same team to promote inclusion. The WELL's Unified Sports soccer program is 6 weeks in duration; each 1.5 hour session will include "skills and drills", along with structured games for each team. Teams are set for the duration of the program to provide consistency and promote new friendships. With that said, we ask that our Unified Partners commit to the full 6 weeks.
Register at no cost by September 25th (limited to individuals with WELL memberships). Spaces limited.

The WELL Climbing Wall
The climbing wall at The WELL provides adaptive climbing for participants who need accommodations. We have adaptive equipment that allows participants to climb the wall without the use of their legs. AIR also provides scheduled adaptive climbing dates and times for people of all abilities to use the adaptive equipment and challenge themselves in new ways. However, accommodations for adaptive climbing are provided during open climbing hours if needed.

Beep kickball is an adaptive sport played by people who have visually impairments. This sport is very similar to standard kickball with a few notable exceptions. Most noticeably, certain positions will require the player to be blindfolded. Players use their sense of hearing to locate the ball and bases, which beep to inform players of where they are.

Wheelchair basketball is a Paralympic sport played in competitive games ranging from one on one games to teams of five on five. Wheelchair basketball is the number one adaptive sport in the world. The rules of basketball and wheelchair basketball are very much alike; the most noticeable difference being that you have to bounce the ball on the court after every two pushes of your wheelchair.
