Afloat Recreation Program Management

The Afloat Recreation Program enhances the quality of life for more than 180,000 Sailors and Marines in Homeports, Yard Periods, and Underway.  Every Navy ship operates an Afloat Recreation Program under the direction of the ship’s Commanding Officer.  Key roles of Recreation Services Officer (RSO) and Recreation Fund Custodian (RFC) are designated by the Commanding Officer to active duty crew members to carry out the daily operations of the program. Recreation & fitness activities, intramural sports, Command theme events, competitions, trips & tours and discount ticket or rebate programs are common categories of program offered to crewmembers.
