Recreational Therapy 

Our  Recreational Therapy (RT) program strives to implement and facilitate inclusive and specialized recreation and leisure pursuits that provide opportunities for members of all abilities and backgrounds to recreate together. Our team of Student Staff, Volunteers, and a Nationally Certified Recreational Therapist work together to provide a multitude of inclusive and specialized recreation and leisure opportunities for groups and individuals.

Special Olympics Virtual College Week 

Virtual College Championship Week is a national level competition held by Special Olympics Unified Sports and ESPN to promote inclusion on our campus community. The Recreational Therapy Department has entered Sac State as Team Sac State to complete various virtual inclusive activities to show how us here at The WELL is working to provide inclusive activities for all of our community members. Most of our activities have been completed with our participants from our Unified All-In Recreation program here at The WELL. We want to showcase how Sac State is working towards inclusion on our campus and we need the help of our community members too. 

Follow along on Instagram posts and stories throughout the week of April 12 - 16 to learn more on the steps we make towards inclusion! 

Below you can find our campus VIPs to take the Special Olympics Sports Inclusion Pledge in order to spread awareness and to pledge to ensure that no one individual is left out from any sport or activity. The campus VIPs were asked to take the pledge as well to showcase how Sac State Faculty is committed to inclusion and the growth of inclusion on the Sac State Campus. We would like to invite to take the Inclusion Pledge by signing here.
