One of the most important lessons in recovery is learning healthy ways to cope with life’s constant ups and downs. Sports are an excellent way to do this and we believe they’re essential to every young man and woman’s sobriety.
Team sports like soccer and basketball encourage teamwork, communication skills and physical fitness—and we learn positive ways to cope with winning and losing. We have summer, fall and spring teams available, including a YMCA recreation league, which is a year-round sport, and a men’s soccer team through the Asheville Buncombe Adult Soccer Association (ABASA).
Real Recovery teams have won three trophies, two regular season championship games and one play-off championship.
