How We Got Started

We are a Not For Profit Organization, a share of our profits goes directly to the students and staff for recreational trips, student appreciation days, and also customer appreciation days. 
We are here to provide social and recreational activities for employees and for students attending training. 
We also provide assistance and support to the activities and operations that benefit the FLETC, employees at the FLETC, and students attending training here at the FLETC.

The FLETC Recreation Association is a non-profit corporation comprised of employees assigned to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. 
The Association was organized in 1976, to establish and maintain closer contacts among staff members; to provide social and recreational activities for employees and students; and among other things, to foster greater cooperation and improve morale. The Association's routine business is handled by a Board of Directors who are elected from and by the membership. Since 1976 the Association has been responsible for all logo items sold in the convenience store and re-named it FLETC Express. It is operated separately from the Association, with an on-site manager. 
On May 1, 1999, the Association purchased the existing Student Center; this too is operated separately from the Association, with an on-site manager, as well.
On April 27, 2001, the Association acquired the operation of the Little Rookies Child Development Center. 
Continuing to grow, the Association opened the Charleston, South Carolina FLETC Express in May 2007. 
The Association also controls the leases for the Dry Cleaners at Glynco and the Barbershops on both bases.
