Inclusive Programs Through CUSR
Our five year mission is to advocate for and provide access to a full range of recreational opportunities for people with disabilities. In addition, we strive to further define and provide our core programs to create partnerships that will increase participation and programs, ensure financial viability for growth and position CUSR to expand its number of member agencies.
CUSR and its member park districts believe that all individuals should be provided with leisure opportunities that allow for performance at their highest level of ability. We understand that not every person who has a special need desires CUSR programming. In cooperation with the Champaign Park District and the Urbana Park District, CUSR staff will be happy to assist and advise any resident who is interested in participating in local park district programs. CUSR will provide the type of support deemed necessary for successful participation. Support may include training with the park district staff members, consultation with the individual and the individual’s family members, and the assistance of a support staff member. CUSR provides all inclusion services at no cost to the individual. For more information, please contact CUSR.
CUSR exists to ensure that people with disabilities, within our member agencies, have access to a full range of recreational services. We create equal access to recreation, which is integral to a higher quality of life. We create awareness and advocate acceptance of people with disabilities in their communities so they more fully participate in recreation and all aspects of society.
CUSR Advisory Committee Meetings
The CUSR Advisory Committee meets quarterly. Please contact CUSR for meeting dates and times. Meetings are open to the public.
CUSR is an intergovernmental cooperative between the Champaign and Urbana Park Districts, that was founded in 1985. CUSR provides year round leisure and recreation opportunities for children and adults with disabilities. Our mission is to enhance participants’ abilities in enjoyable recreational, leisure, and social settings. CUSR participants explore new areas of interest, make new acquaintances, and learn lifetime leisure skills. Our services include inclusive and cooperative programs, special events, after school programs, overnights, trips, Special Olympics, summer day camps and much more.
Invite Us To Speak
CUSR staff members are knowledgable in many disabilityrelated issues and topics. Let us talk to your group about the Americans with Disabilities Act, integration, and the future of special recreation. An overview of CUSR’s mission, trends in recreation and many other topics are available to you with a simple phone call. Call the CUSR office at 217-239-1152 to set up a meeting.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
CUSR complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which prohibits discrimination on the basis of a disability. CUSR will make reasonable accommodations in recreation programs to enable participation by an individual with a disability who meets essential eligibility requirements. The recreation programs offered by CUSR will be available in the most integrated setting appropriate for each individual. If you have any questions regarding the ADA, or believe you have been unfairly discriminated against by CUSR, please contact the CUSR Director at 217-239-1152.

CUSR Transportation Policy
Our door–to–door routes need to have a minimum of 2 registrants to run. If a route is cancelled, a phone call will be made to the participant and their caregiver, and a full refund will be issued to the household balance.
A CUSR registration form must be used. You may register for CUSR programs at these locations: Hays Recreation Center 1311 West Church Street, Champaign Bresnan Meeting Center 706 Kenwood Road, Champaign Douglass Community Center 512 E. Grove Street, Champaign Leonhard Recreation Center 2212 W. Sangamon Drive, Champaign Springer Cultural Center 301 N. Randolph Street, Champaign Or register online at www.cuspecialrecreation.com *Please note: Online registration is not live, so does not guarantee entry into program. Full payment must be received upon registration unless specific arrangements have been made with the CUSR office. Registrations will not be processed if a fee balance remains from a previous season. Registrations are accepted in person at the locations listed above, through mail, and by fax (217-373-7951). When faxing, please include credit card information so we may process the registration. Coordinators and program leaders MAY NOT receive payment or registration forms at programs. CUSR does not prorate for late registration. Exceptions may be made for people who are new to the community.
At times participants may require assistance taking medication during programs. If the participant is unable to self-medicate or take the medication prior to or after the program, CUSR requires additional paperwork and pre-packaged medication must be delivered to our office prior to the program.
Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS)
The CUSR full-time program staff are all Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists. This certification demonstrates that each of these individuals, through education, experience, and passing a knowledge-based examination, has met the minimum requirements for practice in therapeutic recreation. The national exam for Therapeutic Recreation Specialists is based on knowledge from the National Job Analysis Study for Therapeutic Recreation which defines the important skills and knowledge necessary for minimum competency in the therapeutic recreation practice. CUSR employs experienced professionals who understand the level of skill, both physical and mental, needed to participate fully and safely in the programs they plan. Therefore, CUSR reserves the right to determine if a program is suitable for an individual. Staff may serve as a resource to suggest alternate programming.
Non-Resident Program Fees
Participants that do not pay property taxes in Champaign or Urbana will be required to pay 50% more than residents for programs. The NR listed next to the program fee is the Non-Resident fee.

Important information CUSR is committed to conducting its recreation programs and activities in a safe manner and holds the safety of participants in high regard. CUSR continually strives to reduce such risks and insists that all participants follow safety rules and instructions that are designed to protect the participants’ safety. However, participants and parents/guardians of minors registering for the CUSR programs/activities must recognize that there is an inherent risk of injury when choosing to participate in recreational activities/ programs. You are solely responsible for determining if you or your minor child/ward are physically fit and/or skilled for the activities contemplated by this agreement. It is always advisable, especially if the participant is pregnant, disabled in any way, or recently suffered illness, injury, or impairment, to consult a physician before undertaking any physical activity. Warning of risk Recreational activities/programs are intended to challenge and engage the physical, mental and emotional resources of each participant. Despite careful and proper preparation, instruction, medical advice, conditioning and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury when participating in any recreational activity/program. Understandably, not all hazards and dangers can be foreseen. Depending on the particular activity, participants must understand that certain risks, dangers and injuries due to inclement weather, slipping, falling, poor skill level or conditioning, carelessness, horseplay, unsportsmanlike conduct, premises defects, inadequate or defective equipment, inadequate supervision, instruction or officiating, and all other circumstances inherent to indoor and outdoor recreational activities/ programs exist. In this regard, it must be recognized that it is impossible for CUSR to guarantee absolute safety.
Waiver and release of all claims and assumption of risk Please read this form carefully and be aware that in signing up and participating in CUSR programs/activities, you will be expressly assuming the risk and legal liability and waiving and releasing all claims for injuries, damages or loss which you or your minor child/ward might sustain as a result of participating in any and all activities connected with and associated with said programs/activities (including transportation services/vehicle operation, when provided). I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of physical injury to participants in these programs/activities, and I voluntarily agree to assume the full risk of any and all injuries, damages or loss, regardless of severity, that my minor child/ward or I may sustain as a result of said participation. I further agree to waive and relinquish all claims I or my minor child/ward may have (or accrue to me or my child/ward) as a result of participating in these program/activities against CUSR and Champaign and Urbana Park Districts, including their respected officials, officers, employees, and volunteers (hereinafter collectively referred as “CUSR”). I do hereby fully release and forever discharge CUSR from any and all claims for injuries, damages, or loss that my minor child/ward or I may have or which may accrue to me or my minor child/ward and arising out of, connected with, or in any way associated with these programs/activities.

For programs with cancellation dates listed, registration must be cancelled no later than the specified date to receive a full refund. Any program cancellations after the one week deadline will receive NO refund. A $5 service charge will be deducted from all refunds.
Inclement Weather Policy
If inclement weather occurs, CUSR may still decide to hold programs. If the weather turns dangerous, CUSR will call participants prior to the start of the program to cancel the program. If you are unsure whether a program will meet due to inclement weather, call CUSR. Missed programs due to weather may be made up the week after the end of the program season. Credit is given for additional cancellations. In order to be fair to our participants and program leaders, CUSR has enacted a late pick-up policy. The first time a participant is not picked up within a 5 minute grace period, a written warning will be handed out. For each minute following the grace period, a fee of $1/per minute will be charged to the parent or guardian. Registration for other programs will not be accepted until all outstanding late fees are paid. Thank you for helping us to respect others through punctual pick-ups.
CUSR constantly strives to provide participants with high quality recreation programs, activities, and events. To encourage first-time participation, as well as repeat participation, CUSR has a refund policy highlighted by a satisfaction guarantee. This special refund policy provides us with timely feedback about dissatisfaction regarding our services. If you are not completely satisfied, tell us, and we will either invite you to repeat the class at no charge, allow you a credit that can be applied to another program, or issue you a refund. A refund will be granted if you were dissatisfied with the experience due to circumstances under CUSR’s control. If you are not satisfied, we kindly ask you to give us your input or ideas for improvement. Requests for the above mentioned options must be made before the midpoint of the program or within two weeks of a single meeting activity.

Scholarship applications are not guaranteed and are based on available funds, program registration, or choice of program location. Early applications are given priority. Please apply 3-4 weeks before the program start date. Applications are available at the CUSR office and can be mailed upon request. Need is the primary criteria upon which scholarship applicants are considered. Scholarships are not available for transportation and specifically identified programs. For more information, call 217239-1152. Payment plans available to all. ALL monies owed must be paid prior to next season registration accepted.
1. Participants need to wear appropriate attire for program participation (i.e. for athletic/fitness programs comfortable clothing and tennis shoes must be worn).

No bowel/bladder problems upon arrival at the transportation location or program.

If staff needs to communicate any unforeseen change(s) of plans, transportation schedule adjustments, etc., and neither parent/guarding can be reached, the emergency contact is our only source to call.
