PVACC Sports and Recreation Schedule of Events


Attached is the October 2018 Calendar of Recreation Therapy Opportunities.

Touch on a few NEW programs we have started.

PaddleBoarding- First Tuesday of every month in Newport Beach Back Bay. Similar to stand up paddle boarding, but instead of standing, a mounted wheelchair is used. Great day spent on the water enjoying the back bay and all its glory.

Sled Hockey- Flyer attached. A chance to learn a new sport and watch the pros- LA Kings practice. Taking place in Torrance. This program is built for any and all Veterans. See flyer for official information, we will have transportation from the VA.

Sailing- Sailing around Lido Isle in Newport Beach. Sail boat with unique upright chairs to allow for trunk and back support.

These three programs are fairly new and we would love for you to come join us!

Reminder the Winter Sports Clinic Applications are open, if you might want to attend, please complete the attached application. Dr needs to complete one page. Bring it back to the KT/RT office and we will get it turned in.
