National Recreation Day is recognized every February by the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA). The day was established to celebrate the founding of NIRSA, as well as promote habits of health and wellbeing in our communities. At Yates Field House, we celebrate Rec Day with offerings of free fitness and wellness activities to our members, as well as a day dedicated to educating our community about why physical activity is important.
