Our WarriorNOW Bowling League is Recreational Therapy, which means, as defined by The American Therapeutic Recreation Association (ATRA), “it is a treatment service designed to restore, remediate and rehabilitate the veterans level of functioning and independence in life activities, to promote health and wellness as well as reduce or eliminate the activity limitations and restrictions to participation in life situations caused by an illness or disabling condition.”
This allows for a therapist to support the veteran in structuring their world in a positive and productive way, and then providing an activity in the community to practice. The therapist will utilize bowling as a community-based intervention with techniques to improve the physical, cognitive, emotional, social, and leisure needs of their veterans. Research supports the concept that people with active, satisfying lifestyles will be happier and healthier.
