The Recreation Program offers various activities for the inmate population. Activities include intramural leagues and tournaments in both team and individual sports, board games, courses on personal health and fitness, and the screening of a selection of commercially produced motion pictures.
Recreational activities are available to inmates year-round. Intramural leagues will have a posted schedule and will vary in type and duration at each institution.
Recreational activities are provided to all inmates and will vary dependent upon an inmate's programming status and individual needs.
Approximately 45,000 inmates participate in recreation-sponsored tournaments and activities on a monthly basis.
