Recreational Sports

The Ashland University Department of Recreational Services offers a wide range of recreational sports and leisure activities to the Ashland University Community.  Whether you have played sports in the past, want to learn a new skill or simply meet new people, there is something for everyone regardless of  your skill level.  Individuals can participate in two areas of recreational programming: Intramural (IM) Sports and Sport Clubs.


IM Sports are available to all Ashland University students, faculty and staff members.  Annually, the IM Sports program involves over 2,750 participants and offers a comprehensive recreational sport schedule of 15 different sport leagues and tournaments.  These encompass traditional sports, such as basketball, flag football, soccer, volleyball, hockey, and softball as well as ultimate frisbee.

Besides traditional competitions, IM Sports also provides unique programming opportunities including the Holiday Baskebtall Tournament and March Mayhem along with leisure activities such as the Sib-N-Kids Cornhole Tournament.

PictureIn addition to IM Sports, Sport Clubs provide competitive and non-competitive sporting opportunities on and off the Ashland University main campus.  With a total of 21 Sport Clubs, these student-run organizations serve as a great way to become involved with other Ashland University students who share similar interests within recreational and competitive sports.  Any new Sport Club may be started by a current Ashland University student.  All Ashland University students, faculty and staff members can participate, so join today!
