Extreme Recess

Extreme Recess was created on the realization that there were no organized sports in Illinois for children with disabilities.We partnered with the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and together we created a summer sports program for these children. Extreme Recess is the first adaptive sports program of it’s kind. It gives children with physical and developmental disabilities the opportunity to participate in sports. The sporting events range from snow and water skiing to baseball. We give these children a reason to believe they have the ability that they once thought non-existent.

Participate in Extreme Recess

Youth have opportunities to expand their social lives as they come from the sidelines of life to participate in the activities of their dreams. Extreme Recess brings children the joy of teammates and new friends who cheer their ability and success. By partnering with local professional teams and sports associations, the children are able to interact with pro athletes at a personal level. The confidence, self-respect, and motivation gained during the events carry over to the classroom and empower them to passionately learn and seize each and every day.
