Disability Sport Services

Recreational Services encourages all individuals who have disabilities to become involved in the activities, programs, and services available through the department. Equipment in our Fitness Center can be easily accessed or adapted for individual use. Fitness Center Staff is readily available to assist by familiarizing individuals to the equipment, provide spotting, and provide assistance in reaching personal fitness goals. We welcome suggestions and will make every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of all individuals who utilize our services and programs.
