Radford University’s Campus Recreation promotes quality recreational opportunities for the entire campus community, regardless of skill and experience. Students have several different options to become involved with recreational activities:
Radford University offers 21 sports clubs that compete with other regional schools and can lead to regional playoffs or even national tournaments. Radford University’s club teams have won 40 league titles, including the 2008 Sports Division National Championship for men's rugby.
A variety of individual and team sports/activities are planned, ranging from regular league competition to more informal tournaments and one-day events that are intended to meet all skill levels. You can create a team or we can match you with a team, including flag football, volleyball, basketball, dodge ball, soccer, bowling and more.
Free classes are taught by experienced students and include step, jazzercise, cardio, kickboxing, strength training and more. Aerobics classes are taught at different times Monday through Friday and some weekends in the Peters Hall aerobics room.
The adventure programming component to Campus Recreation. The mission of RU Outdoors is to provide outdoor adventures, promote healthy self-discovery, emphasize respect and awareness for our natural resources and unlock student leadership potential. Our trips include hiking, backpacking, paddling, caving, mountain biking and climbing adventures. You don’t have to worry about your skill level because all of our trips are led by students who have extensive training. They will provide you with a hands-on learning experience and can also lead special clinics about outdoor ethics. All trips, unless otherwise noted, are designed to meet the needs of beginner level participants. For a low fee, we provide instruction, technical equipment and transportation to the activity site. Want to plan a trip? We also rent gear to students for a nominal fee.
