The purpose of the Recreation Department is to provide and to promote a large variety of recreational activities to the FCC Victorville (USP, FCI I, FCI II, and Camp) inmate population. The Recreation programs are to provide gainful use of free time and to fulfill specific inmates’ needs. Formal and informal programs offer a combination of competitive, recreational, and fitness type activities designed to reach a wide range of age, culture, ability, and interests. The Recreation Department ensures that the inmate population is made aware of all activities and programs available by displaying flyers and monthly calendar of events in not only the housing units but in the recreation area. The Recreation Department’s main goal is to provide inmates an opportunity to improve their health, fitness, development of mental and physical skills, and to be actively involved in leisure time activities.

RECREATION RULES & REGULATIONS The following rules are to be adhered to while using recreation areas and equipment. Failure to do so may result in suspension from the recreation department in general or from the specific program area in which the violation occurred. Recreation Staff have the authority to refuse inmates access to recreation, if they believe it is not conducive and /or in the best interest of safety and security to allow inmates on the recreation yard.

If the inmate continues to present a problem, an incident report may be written. In addition, incident reports that are written on inmates while in recreation or participating in a recreation sanctioned event may be reviewed by either the Unit Disciplinary Committee (UDC) or the Disciplinary Hearing Officer (DHO) depending on the severity of the offense. The UDC or DHO may impose sanctions that include the loss of recreation privileges for a specified time. Please see recreation bulletin boards for specific rules and procedures at each institution.
