The University of Lynchburg’s Club Sports program provides each student an opportunity to engage in a unique campus experience and to develop skills in service, leadership, responsibility, decision-making, and teamwork. With two or fewer structured practices in a typical week, and with the potential for year-round competition, club sport teams offer student-athletes greater flexibility than varsity teams. Club sport teams are student-led organizations that compete locally, regionally, and nationally with most competitions occurring during weekends. Student-athletes of all skill and competition levels are welcome.
A full list of active club sport teams is available on the Club Sports webpage. To express interest in joining a club sport team or in starting a new club sport, click “contact us” on an individual team’s webpage, or contact the director of club sports.
Intramural and Campus Recreation provides opportunities for students to engage in healthy competition, to assist each other in learning new skills, and to interact with students outside one’s familiar social groups. Intramural sports offered include basketball, dodgeball, flag football, floor hockey, soccer, ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, and wiffle ball, as well as Playstation, Halo, and poker tournaments. Additional sports may be offered based on student interest.
Fitness classes such as Zumba, yoga, belly dancing, CrossFit, and kickboxing are offered throughout the semesters, as are pingpong, pool, air hockey, and foosball tournaments.

Outdoor Recreation and Leadership offers both recreational adventures and leadership development programs for the University of Lynchburg campus community. Activities are organized and facilitated by Lynchburg students and include hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, caving, whitewater rafting, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, and ropes course workshops. All activities are “challenge by choice,” and no experience is necessary. The only prerequisites are a willingness to explore, a desire to challenge oneself, and curiosity to seek adventures available in the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains and beyond.
Outdoor Recreation and Leadership offers a variety of student staff positions. Staff members spend their first year training in the basics of adventure education, and then build upon that foundation by leading wilderness and adventure course programs.
