Adaptive Recreation and Learning Exchange

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.


LE = Learning Exchange  The school districts of Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Edina, and Richfield Community Education Adults with Disabilities programs work together to offer customized classes for adults with developmental and/or physical disabilities.  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.


See Fall 2019 opportunities in the current Fall 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.


Professionals wishing to receive an email link to the catalog three times a year should email their name and phone number to:
