All In (Barrier-Free Recreation)

It can be challenging to find compelling recreational activities for adults and children with disabilities. We have a dedicated staff that is driven to provide the best possible options for all our participants in Western MA and CT.

Barrier-free recreation allows everyone to live an active life. Whether you’re drawn to the beauty of dance or the thrill of rock climbing, we’ll help you pursue your passions.

Get In On The Action

All In brings a wide range of activities to people of all ages and abilities.

We offer year-round programs like dance and sled hockey as well as seasonal activities like swimming and Adaptive CrossFit.

We want everyone to have the opportunity to explore their interests, so if you have a program suggestion please let us know! Our goal is to provide fun, engaging, confidence-building activities to people of all abilities.

Community outreach

If your school or workplace would like to learn more about physical disabilities, we’d be happy to give a presentation. Tailored to school children or business professionals, we’ll explore myths and share stories that help shatter old ideas about disabilities.

For younger audiences, adapted play can be incorporated to increase understanding and engagement. Afterwards, we’ll open the floor to questions so that everyone has a chance to participate.

  • Sled hockey
  • Cycling
  • Fishing
  • Adaptive CrossFit
  • Rock climbing
  • Basketball
  • Hip-hop dance
  • Water skiing
