Serving People with Disabilities
AR&LE is Made up of Two Parts
AR = Adaptive Recreation The cities of Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Edina, and Richfield offer programs specifically designed for people of all ages with disabilities. Programs include softball, bowling, water aerobics, fitness programs, skiing/snowboarding, golf, as well as a number of social programs for youth and adults.

Classes include cooking, independent living skills, theater and performing arts, health, fitness, and other leisure learning activities.
A Participant Profile is required to participate in AR&LE programs.
AR&LE publishes a catalog of our classes and activities. Here you will find descriptions of all of our programming.
If you’re interested in Spring and Summer opportunity, please see our Spring/Summer Catalog.
Find classes and activities that you would like in the catalog, then contact the organization that offers the program (look in the upper corner of each catalog page).
Registration is done separately through each organization.
AR&LE’s catalog is published three times each year in late-November, late-February, and late-July.
Details about required participant profiles and a transportation option can be found on the first two pages of the catalog.
