Therapeutic Recreation

Therapeutic & Unified Sports

Therapeutic Recreation is born from the idea that every member of the community has the right to leisure, no matter the level of ability. Our goal is to remove the barriers that may keep some individuals in the community from participating in recreation activities. Through recreation, participants have the opportunity to become more active, learn a new sport, and improve social skills, all while making new friends!

Unified Sports offers the opportunity for all youth and adults to play on a sports team. It joins both youth/adults with disabilities and those without disabilities to train and to play together as a team. Smaller fields and modified equipment may be used as needed to ensure fairness and safety for all. Any person age five or older is eligible to participate.

Please contact Shelli Davis Boesner at sdavis@tompsc.com or call 884-2528 for more information and to get on the weekly mailing list - don't miss out on great activities and events!
