Athletic & Recreational Clubs

Students play soccer on the Quad

Varsity level student-athletes are not the only people encouraged to develop their athletic and leadership skills through competitive sports.

We offer a variety of intramural and outdoor programs designed to give athletes of all skill levels opportunities to compete, develop athletic skills and leadership.

Intramural programs typically change from semester to semester depending on student interest. Previous offerings have included flag football, ultimate Frisbee, softball, basketball, soccer, kickball, tennis, life jacket water polo and beach volleyball.

Students also are encouraged to explore the outdoors through programs that teach wilderness leadership and an appreciation and understanding of nature. Trips can last anywhere from a few hours to several days.

Some outdoor programs trips have included rock climbing, backpacking, bungee jumping, sea kayaking, hot air ballooning, biking, rafting, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, scuba diving, camping, sailing, surfing and fishing. Community service also is incorporated into some of the trips.

Students start new athletic and recreational clubs and organizations every year. Currently, the following clubs are active on campus:

  • Ballroom Dance Club
  • Climbing Club
  • Men and Women’s Ultimate Frisbee
  • Men’s Lacrosse
  • Quidditch Club
  • Redlands Boarding Club
