Intramural Sports & Outdoor Recreation

UVa-Wise’s intramural sports teams are a way for students to meet people and stay active while engaging in a little friendly competition. With over a dozen sports to choose from, including volleyball, flag football, soccer, and more, you’re sure to make new friends and have fun.

As a college surrounded by a plethora of mountains, valleys, waterfalls, and more, our students have the unique opportunity to experience the great outdoors in a whole new way. UVa-Wise hosts a variety of outdoor recreation events and opportunities, from hiking and fishing to rock climbing and camping.

And remember, you don’t have to be an expert athlete to be active. Join an intramural sport or outdoor recreation event, where individuals of all skill levels are welcome!
