Adaptive Recreation (AIR)

Quick Links:


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.

Interested in volunteering? We accept volunteers on a semester basis. If you are interested in volunteering for the Fall 2017 semester please contact us with the button below.

Beep softball/kickball is an adaptive sport played by people who have visually impairments. This sport is very similar to standard softball/kickball with a few notable exceptions.
