Hit a Home Run: Sports & Recreation

Sports and recreation programs foster a sense of belonging, community, friendships and positive adult relationships. Members learn the objectives and rules of games and sports from Trivia Pursuit to flhome_runag football, and then progress to learning plays, techniques, and strategies. They also learn what it means to be a great team member on and off the field.

These programs are designed to teach members how to play sports and recreational games along with the skills necessary for improvement, such as teamwork, communication, attention, cooperation, endurance, and sportsmanship. In addition to these outcomes, members also build self-confidence and self-esteem, gaining the ability to perceive value in themselves and others.
