Students have the opportunity to participate in intercollegiate, club, intramural and recreational sports and activities. The recreation department offers students a wide variety of club sports to choose from. Students can pick from hockey, equestrian, rugby, ultimate Frisbee, and a multitude of other sports. Students with any level of experience are welcomed to play. Roanoke College greatly supports students who wish to play club sports and can provide the resources needed to make the participation in club sports a valuable and enjoyable experience.
Joining a Club sport can greatly enhance ones college experience. It provides students with an outlet to release stress that arises from classes, as well as a way for students to interact with people they otherwise would never have met.
