What We Do
The Department of Recreational Sports recognizes that our community extends beyond our students, faculty, and staff, to the families, friends, alumni, and neighbors of the university. To serve the diverse recreational needs of the entire community, community programs offers a variety of programs and services for everyone from infants to seniors. Programs offered include youth and adult sports, swim lessons, lifeguarding, scuba classes, babysitting, school year camp programs, football Saturdays, and Camp Recky.
Housed within community programs is the adapted recreational sports (ARS) program. The Ohio State University has a rich history of innovative programs for individuals with disabilities. Inclusion is the anchor component of the ARS program philosophy. The focus is to promote "wellness for everyone" while serving our members.
Our goal is to enhance independence and inclusion for individuals with disabilities through recreation and physical activity. We offer customized programming to meet your needs including a new stretching program and outdoor adventure activities to increase your strength, flexibility, and endurance.
Set up a one-on-one consultation with the ARS coordinator or supervisor to find out about all of the recreational opportunities available to your individual needs (Rec Sports members only, which includes fee paying students). Contact us to learn more.
