UCLA Recreation

UCLA Recreation provides therapeutically-based recreation programs for people with cognitive and physical disabilities that expand their access to opportunities that promote physical fitness, health and wellness, increased self-esteem, and greater functional independence.

In addition to adaptive programs, we provide opportunities for students and community members to volunteer. Volunteers are utilized in the development and delivery of programs.

Educating the campus community on the lifestyle of individuals with disabilities in relation to recreation and sport is another aspect of the program. Adaptive Recreation is committed to providing programs and presentations to campus organizations about adaptive equipment and programs.

With the goal to improve the quality of life for UCLA students and community members, our unique and integrative approach to adaptive recreation emphasizes:

  • Providing greater access to outdoor recreation and other recreation pursuits
  • Educating individuals so they have the knowledge and skills to safely participate in recreation programs
  • Providing equipment and resources to help individuals achieve greater functional independence in recreational activity
  • Exploring partnerships with the other organizations

Specialized programs can be developed for groups and different populations. For more information, contact us at (310) 825-1059 or adaptive@recreation.ucla.edu.
